Marriott Dining Room, Hospitality Management

The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Dining Room is the laboratory environment for our course HM 207 Applied Food Production Management for the lunch series and HM 407 Restaurant Operations for the School of Hospitality Management for the dinner series. Students develop their management and leadership abilities by taking responsibility for all aspects of the operation from concept development to financial results.

Lunch Series

Lunch is served every Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the Marriott Dining Room during the fall and spring semesters.No reservation is required. 

Dinner Series

Dinner is served on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Marriott Dining Room during the fall and spring semesters.

Reservations are required. Call 610-499-1127.

The Dinner Series adds servers and a bartender to integrate the dining experience to that of the food production. Our patrons enjoy a four-course meal prepared and served by School of Hospitality Management students.

The student groups are assigned a theme, and the management teams research the recipes and assign the production of these items to their classmates.
