Can you imagine a world with no restaurants or fast-food drive-throughs?  Since nearly every main street in Canada is now lined with these establishments, it may be hard to envision life without them. Yet there was a time when the only food a person consumed was the food prepared by himself or his family. The food service industry has shaped our society in innumerable ways, from pumping money into the economy to changing the way Canadians eat (for better or for worse!).  To begin with, Unit One/First  Assignment:  The History and Development of the Food Service Industry  examines the rich history of the food service industry as well as some of its key players.
