Restaurant, Hotel and Hospitality OVERVIEW

       At Plunkett Research, we look at the “hospitality” industry in a broad way, to include most types of services or sectors that serve freshly-prepared food and drinks to customers or provide lodging services to travelers.
     That is, they literally provide hospitality to their paying guests.
     Consequently, we include restaurants of all types, as well as catering, cafeterias, coffee shops and bars or taverns.
     (However, we do not include the prepared food sections of supermarkets.)  On the lodging side of hospitality, we include hotels, motels, inns, resorts and hostels.
     In addition, we include cruise lines—a hospitality segment that is of growing importance to the global economy.
     Of course, many lodging businesses, such as hotels and cruise lines, also include restaurants, and more than a few include casinos, retail shopping areas or resort amenities.
     Restaurants:  The global restaurant industry generated approximately $2.2 trillion in 2018, with the fast food segment accounting for about 12% of that number.
     In the U.S., the Census Bureau reports total food service and bars revenues at $717.0 billion for 2018.
     America enjoys more than 1 million restaurants of all types.
     Hotels:   The total number of hotels and inns of all types in the world is more than 200,000, containing more than 15 million guest rooms.
     STR Global maintains a database of significant hotel properties (those with 15 or more rooms in
