The Food Service Manager; A Study of the Need for a Food Service Management Program in Ocean County.
Ocean County Coll., Toms River, NJ.
Ocean County College conducted a feasibility study for the purpose of determining whether there was a need for a food service management program within its service area and to ascertain an estimate of the potential student pool for such a program. Surveys were sent to 243 restaurants and institutions and were administered to students from county high schools and vocational-technical schools. Results of the survey revealed: (1) 46% of the institutions felt a need for a higher education food service program while 65% of the restaurants felt such a need existed; (2) restaurants and institutions felt that nearly 500 of their present employees could benefit from such a program; (3) 42% of the potential employers of food service managers indicated they would probably assist their employees with tuition expenses; (4) of the students surveyed, 45 expressed an interest in a food service management program; (5) and 60% of the potential employers were willing to accept interns on a cooperative basis. It was recommended that a food service management program be developed and that all necessary steps be taken to implement the program on an evening basis beginning in spring 1977. Tabular data are presented throughout the report and the survey instruments are attached. (JDS)
