Excerpt from Term Paper :

In most fast foods there is a kid's corner and there are even nice persons entertaining them while you indulge yourself with their good, but not so healthy food.

However, all over the world, fast food restaurant chains started diminishing the quantity of fat they use in preparing their products due to societal pressure and obesity statistics. Moreover, they have started to introduce on their menus, dishes such as salads or organic made products. Seems like organic is the strongest trend of the future, no matter if we talk about a fast food restaurant or a highly posh restaurant because it will enable one to sustain a healthy lifestyle, and lose weight.

Green Restaurants

Green restaurants are even more than just places where they serve organic food.

Certified Green Restaurants ™ meet the following standards: they use a comprehensive recycling system for all products that are accepted by local recycling companies, are free of polystyrene foam ("Styrofoam") products, commit to completing four Environmental Steps per year of membership and complete at least one Environmental Step after joining the GRA. So, not only that they serve healthy food, but they also take care of the environment by using recyclable materials.

As a conclusion to our research we must state the fact that it does not matter what type of restaurant you open as long as the food is good and the services are of quality. Most importantly, you must make sure that the dishes served will enable one to sustain a healthy lifestyle; that is, try using natural and organic products as much as you can and persuade your customers in choosing them over the other fattening products. Explain to them that by eating lesser fat they will lose weight, and, even more importantly, they will conserve or even improve their physical and psychical condition as well as their health. Draw their attention on the obesity factors and consequences and underline the importance of a change in their lifestyle and metabolism. and, if this is impossible at least make sure that you have a healthier alternative to your products. Include in your menu recipes that contain ingredients such as fish, sea food, fruits and vegetable, white meat and milk-based products.

Conducting a business is not all about profit but also by gaining and maintaining a name and a place on the market. Make sure that even after you have achieved your goals, your standards, services and quality of the products remain the same or improve with the time. What is even harder to preserve than customers is the good name of your business.
