New Edition of EI's Popular 'Planning and Control' Textbook Highlights Technology, Multi-Unit Management Issues


LANSING, Mich., August 2004 - The new sixth edition of Planning and Control for Food and Beverage Operations, published by the Educational Institute of the American Hotel & Lodging Association, reflects important trends in modern food and beverage operations, including technology applications and the challenges of multi-unit management in the practice of cost control.  This practical textbook, written by Michigan State University's Jack D. Ninemeier, Ph.D, CFBE, CHE, shows how control principles are used by working food and beverage professionals to solve real-world F&B issues. It includes everything a manager must know to control all major expenses, including food, beverages, labor, and production.

Most of the book's 14 chapters feature new material on multi-unit operations and automated technology applications and their impact on food and beverage services.  The author answers such questions as: 

  • How do external-unit managers know that information supplied by their staff is accurate? 
  • How do multi-unit managers know what, if any, problems exist? 
  • What basics should be addressed in light of the proliferating alternatives for high-tech operating controls? 
Students and professionals alike will find this new edition to be a valuable learning guide for working in today's food and beverage operations.
