National Hospitality Workers Appreciation Day

National Hospitality Workers Appreciation Day is an annual American holiday celebrating service workers. We should thank these people for their work. They answer customers’ questions, help with an order or service, and more. The holiday is celebrated annually on February 23.

History

The creation of National Hospitality Workers Appreciation Day was made possible by the online Food Service Direct store. His catalog was full of items for both chefs and service personnel in restaurants and cafes.

The service industry brings together workers in a variety of areas: hotel and restaurant businesses, call centers, gyms, theme parks and more.

The origin of the word “Hospitality” has French roots and originally stood for “care for travelers. It is believed that the origins of the modern service sector lie in the late 18th century, when they began to actively open the inn. Such establishments provided overnight shelter for travelers, where they could order food and keep warm. Horses were also cared for. Masters, if necessary, could repair the cart or carriage. Over time, they began to build more advanced buildings that were intended for travelers. They were called hotels.

It’s hard enough to work in the service industry. You need to be able to cope with stress, constantly communicate with people, while being positive and giving people a smile, so that customers increase their mood and they have a good impression of the institution.
