Transcript Gleaming new 54-story corporate headquarters of Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) opens in 1972—and Marriott enters New York market for first time to provide executive food service (left page) Everyone has a good time at Farrell's, now a part of Marriott Restaurant Operations and spreading its network of "ice cream parlour restaurants" from the West Coast to the East they have consistently prospered under our management. Our Jr. Hot Shoppes are particularly strong in the Washington-Baltimore market—-even in head-to-head competition with other more heavily-advertised operations. We think we have in our 100-unit Fast Food group the nucleus for vigorous fast food growth and look forward to steady expansion for both Roy Rogers and Jr. Hot Shoppes. What kind of year did the Roy Rogers franchisees have? Some came through the shake- out in good shape. Others did not. As indicated, we have acquired some with good results. Several have been closed. The present network of franchisees generally is solid. We are trying to give them full support, and we expect a number of new franchised units to be opened in Fiscal 73. Is your Food Service Management business still expanding rapidly? The group as a whole has been one of our strongest. Business and Industry continues to top the four divisions. How about the other three divisions during 1972? Thanks to good sales results and several new services we are offering, the Hospital Division had a fine year. Performance was somewhat spotty in Schools and Colleges, where we are sharing the difficult social and economic problems faced generally by colleges and universities. Automatic Food Service, smallest and newest of the four divisions, had its best year. You mentioned new services. Like what? Our Food Service Management Group has actively been diversifying its "product"—into areas like architectural design, housekeeping, and general consulting serv- 7 ices. We are finding a ready market for clients who want and are willing to pay for our well known standards and unique professional capabilities. Can you tell us about any major new contracts obtained in fiscal 1972? We entered the New York- Manhattan market for the first time and won the right to provide executive dining service at the beautiful new Standard Oil Company (New Jersey) corporate headquarters building. We began service to Avon, New England Telephone &Telegraph, Williamsburg Community Hospital, and several other fine new accounts. Most of the company-owned Big Boy Coffee Shops are in Southern California. How have they survived the troubled economic condition in that part of the country? The division has had a good profit year under some difficult circumstances. We opened ten new Big Boys and seven Big Boy Jrs. during the year—a healthy expansion. How are the new Big Boy Jrs. doing? We are generally pleased with their success, and our first shopping center unit has done particu- iarly well. This is an area where we see real growth opportunity for the future. Are Big Boy salad dressings and sauces well received in the retail market? These products continue to be the leader in sales of all refrigerated dressings in California- Nevada-Arizona retail markets. They had their best year in 1972. What did the Big Boy franchises mean to you this past year? The total number climbed to 611
