Food Service/Hospitality and Tourism  industries have customer service at their core; providing a product may attract a customer, but providing excellent service ensures customer loyalty and business longevity.  Hospitality is a state of mind, where a positive attitude, and desire to help people, are as important as knowing how to operate a computer reservation system. These three industries are renowned for their ability to foster personal and professional growth in their employees, regardless of background.  In these industries it is common to find hotel bellhops who became General Managers and waiters who became managers or restaurant owners.
