The author comments on the ingenuity in the food service industry. First there were restaurants, borne of taverns. Then, not necessarily in this order, there was catering, the rise of the non-commercial business and supermarkets selling meals. The latest concept is the delivery of meals to business travelers. The full complement of gourmet meals and snacks provided will eliminate the temptation to raid the hotel vending machine or order greasy room service at midnight.
