Transcript In 1970 the jumbo 747 ... in 1971 the DC-10.. . and now in 1972 the L-1011— as Marriott continues first in service to the age of wide-body jets, catering the new Eastern Air Lines L-1011 (left page) People everywhere going to far-away places, and Marriott is going with them, as expansion in new catering kitchens continues in foreign and United States air travel markets 13 markets. In Frankfurt, Germany we have obtained several accounts and are building two new kitchens. Frankfurt is third to London and Paris in annual European passenger traffic. We are also making our first move to the Far East with a new kitchen at Guam—and our first entry onto the African continent with a kitchen at Johannesburg. We will be opening a new kitchen at Gatwick, England, the London base for charter flights, and will open an addition to our kitchen at Acapulco. We will manage a kitchen in Barbados, in which we are acquiring a 49% interest. It will be quite a year for us internationally. Is Paris also one of the larger European airports you will serve shortly? Yes, in 1974. We have signed an agreement to join with Air France in the construction and operation of a giant base and administrative facility at the new Roissy Airport being built outside Paris. The facility will include extensive kitchen capacity. We are proud to be selected by Air France as partners in this new venture, which will operate under the name Servair. By 1974 then, we will be in the four biggest European airports, at London, Paris, Frankfurt and Rome. Of course, we are already in other volume markets, like Palma, Lisbon, Madrid and Athens. Will you be adding kitchen capacity in the United States in 1973? By a large amount. With the Delta account in Miami, we are building a fourth kitchen there. We will add a second kitchen in Boston. And we will begin operations for the first time at four other airports: the new "super ports" at Kansas City and Dallas-Ft. Worth, and at Albuquerque and Denver. What is all this expansion giving you in square footage?

This is almost double our total of 1968, before we began our world-wide growth program. Are you running at or near capacity in your kitchens? We are usually in the 65 to 70 per cent range, which is acceptable. We know, however, that we do have an opportunity here to use excess capacity to great advantage, and we have begun a program to pursue special new food service business. Would you describe this? We are providing meals to several hospitals in the San Francisco-Oakland area. We have started a modest contract for school lunches in the Washington, D.C. area. We fed a 2,000-person banquet in Minneapolis. We have rpAMK CURT rnANNrUn I D HMw opened industrial and hospital accounts in South America this past year. The objective is to take full advantage of "off-time" capacity when airplane boardings are down—to keep our operations running, our people employed, and our volume up. The program appears quite promising. Of course, we will continue to place primary emphasis on airline catering. Is the Auto-Train contract an example of your new-business emphasis? This was the pilot that launched us into a full-scale program. Our work with Auto-Train has been a highlight of our past year. The concept has been extremely successful, and we are pleased to be part of it. Auto-Train ran capacity loads of people and their
