One of the unique aspects of food service operations is that the industry requires exemplary expertise plus constant, elaborate, and valuable pieces of training. Food production demands skilled and unskilled human capital making it difficult for non-food production businesses to manage the requirements in the realms of equipment and expertise. Additionally, in food services operations, there are shifts in demand for foods depending on time and locality.
Change in seasons like the weather might alter what is required in the market. The demand for foods in most cases happens during peak hours like breakfast in the morning and lunch in midday. The nature of food production being so much labor-intense, thus so involving, can consume time for other activities. Therefore, such services can only be executed effectively by businesses involved in food production and catering services. The aspects of legal matters on food processes equally make the industry unique.
