The selection of restaurant is crucial, since to must maximize enjoyment of the employees. The annual event also must be conducted in reputable restaurant that enhances the reputation of the company.

Overview of Alternatives

There are two probable solutions to the choice of the best hotel and restaurant for hosting this year’s annual dinner.

 Alternative A– Levy Hotel and Restaurant: Levy is a two star restaurant located in the coastal regions of the country.  The restaurant has a reputation for providing ample climate for relaxation and vacations.  It will require the company to book flight tickets for the 50 employees to reach the restaurant.  It also serves diverse foods and beverages to the customers.

Alternative B– Mars Cottages is a restaurant and reputable 4 star hotel located within the city in which the accounting company is located. Mar Cottages also provides boarding and lodging services to the clients. It gained has good reputation due to hosting big politicians in the country. It also serves a wide variety of foods and beverages to the customers.

Criteria

 The following five criteria would be helpful in evaluating the feasibility of each alternative.

Recommendation

In addition, the company has a good relationship with the restaurant and that makes it easy to negotiate for the services (Divsalar, Vansteenwegen & Cattrysse, 2013).
