THE BRANCHE/INDUSTRY (where we use the word BRANCHE you can also read INDUSTRY)
Like in the rest of the world many people in the Netherlands visit Quick Service Restaurants like McDonald’s, Burgerking, KFC. Apart from these well-known fastfoodrestaurants, we consider also outlets where food and drinks are being served (fast) to consume on the spot or to go/take away, being part of a branche called “Fastservice”: a blend of (quick)foodservice, retail and hospitality industry.
In the Netherland there are about 10.000 outlets part of this branche: fresh fruit drinks bars, ice-cream outlets, coffee corners, pizza delivery companies, pancake restaurants, sandwich shops, bakery outlets, lunchrooms, and traditional “cafeteria’s”, (as we call them in Holland) selling French fries and deep-fried snacks, salads, light meals, ice-cream and drinks.
Not only in Holland the branche has a negative image: for as well as the food ( unhealthy) as working ( so called Mcjobs). With this site we want to inform people about all possibilities of study and working in the branche and so improving the branche image here in Holland.
We stand for improving the standard and level of work (by education/workshops) for employees and entrepreneurs by giving good information.
