There are a number of challenges that can come with working in hospitality or a related business in the industry. Some of the greatest challenges in this context may be those related to supply and having access to the necessary ingredients when you need them. It can be difficult to maintain your access to certain supply chains, especially when you have competition who also use the same supplies as you. In addition, it can be logistically difficult to have access to the suppliers you need when you also have to run your own business.
Not only is it impractical to rely on supermarkets as your main source of food supplies, but it rarely leads to good results. Most supermarkets sell food or ingredients that are of relatively poor quality, or that have been in the store for days already. If you work in hospitality, then you know that this is not acceptable quality to sell to a paying customer. Word of mouth is vital in hospitality as well, and you don’t want to develop a reputation of selling people food made from ingredients of a poor quality. However, some hospitality businesses don’t know of any alternative. They don’t have the time or resources to employ someone purely to get supplies.
