An environmental design research study was conducted in dining facilities at three Air Force bases to determine if the results and conclusions of previous studies are applicable to the entire Air Force food service system. The investigation reported here was to determine if consumers ratings of an ideal dining environment are consistent throughout the system. In this study 355 enlisted Air Force personnel completed the environmental evaluation survey, which included a measure of an ideal dining environment. Their ratings of an ideal dining environment were compared statistically across bases as a direct test of the hypothesis that differences in geographic location, climatic conditions, state of existing dining environment, and base mission would not significantly affect consumer attitudes about an ideal dining environment.
