1.1 Background of the Study
Computerized Restaurant Management Information System is the database program that keeps record of all transactions carried out in the restaurants on daily bases. The system helps the restaurant management to keep adequate record of all transactions carried out by the restaurant personnel and maintain the database of the restaurant. Various types of fall by several industries are classified based on menu style, preparation methods and pricing. Additionally, how the food is served to the customer helps to determine the classification.
Historically, restaurant referred only to as a place that provided tables where one can sit down to eat the meal, typically served by a Waiter. Following the rise of Fast food in the restaurants, a retronym for the older standard restaurant was created, sit-down restaurant. Most commonly, sit-down restaurant refers to a casual dining restaurant with table service, rather than a diner, where one orders food at a countop. Sit-down restaurants are often further categorized, in North America, as family-style.
The term restaurant means an eating establishment with table service, so the sit-down qualification is not usually necessary. Fast food and takeaway (take-out) outlets with counter service are not normally referred to as restaurants. Outside the North-America, the terms fast casual dining restaurants, family style, and casual dining are not used, and distinctions among different kinds of restaurants is often not the same.
In France, for example, some restaurants are called bistros to indicate a level of casualness or trendiness, though some "bistros" are quite formal in the kind of food they serve and clientele they attract. Others are called brasseries, a term which indicates hours of service. Brasseries may serve food round the clock, whereas restaurants usually only serve at set intervals during the day.
