Abstract:

To regain efficiency and excellence in its feeding facilities, the U. S. Marine Corps needs to renovate or build new mess halls with a long-term 915 to 20 years plan in mind. This report, Volume I of all four volume set, establishes the analysis, synopsizes conclusions and provides the overall recommendations. Volume II analyzes the demographic factors and food industry trends that may influence future food service and examines customer expectations through surveys and expert opinions. Volume III is the systems analysis, detailing how man and machine support the food service effort. Volume IV provides the physical layouts, decor recommendations, and equipment lists for suggested dining facility configurations. These volumes culminate the investigations of numerous people over the course of the project and are offered as templates for future Marine Corps dining facilities. Keywords Marine Corps, Food service, Food industry, Enlisted dining facilities, Marine Corps facilities.
