Transcript Contract Food Services Breakfast is another good Marriott meal—whether at an all-purpose restaurant such as Allie's in our new Des Moines hotel, or from room or banquet service. In recent years, Marriott has upgraded the design features of its standard guest room. Projects scheduled to be completed in 1982 include new hotels at Albuquerque (414), Boston/Long Wharf (400), Charleston, West Virginia (356), Dallas/Fort Worth Airport (500) and Dallas/Quorum Center (563), Dayton (300), Denver/City Center (612), El Paso (300), Hartford/Farmington, Connecticut (300), Nassau, New York (361), Omaha (306), Raleigh, North Carolina (312) and Washington, D.C./Crystal Gateway (454). New inns will open in San Antonio (300) and Worcester, Massachusetts (250). International hotels are expected to open in Athens (292), Cairo (1,255) and Panama City, Panama (400). Expansion projects are scheduled for Marco Island, Miami and Orlando, Florida, and Santa Clara, California. A complete list of Marriott Hotels appears on page 23. Outlook Marriott significantly improved its leadership position in the lodging industry during 1981, through its strong expansion program and successful financial performance in a difficult economic environment. The quality of our hotel product, management and other systems, coupled with our constantly broadening base of rooms, make us very enthusiastic about the prospects for solid long-term growth in this, the company's largest business. The company provides a wide range of food service capabilities to a diverse group of clients through the Contract Food Services Group, which operates more than 350 units in the United States and 18 other countries. Marriott pioneered airline catering in the 1930s. Today, it supplies in-flight food service from 70 flight kitchens to more than 100 airlines in the U.S. and abroad. The company also serves travelers through a growing number of airport terminal restaurants as well as tollway restaurants. Food service management capabilities for business, health care and educational institutions are provided to more than 230 clients. Facilities managed by Marriott include restaurants, cafeterias, conference centers and other installations. Marriott's leadership in this industry has been sustained by basic operating strengths that help it to continue growing even in hard times, and position it for solid long-term growth. Performance in 1981 Results for Contract Food Services were significantly improved in 1981, even with the Professional Air Traffic Controllers (PATCO) strike and continued soft air travel due to economic conditions. Operating income increased 14%, while sales rose 13%. The year's performance reflected inflation and some unit expansion. Intensive marketing efforts built new business unit volume that more than offset the impact of both domestic airline schedule cutbacks and competition in certain international airline catering markets. Continuing cost control and productivity improvement programs helped protect margins. Key Strengths The group's consistent growth in recent years has been achieved largely because of several important strengths that also provide a basis for future profit expectations. These strengths include: □ Reputation for outstanding quality. Marriott has carefully built a reputation for quality food service, facilities and management in this industry over many years. A 18
