Transcript year. Major new accounts include Celanese Corporation, Western Electric—and in Houston, the Dresser Industries Tower and the new 47- story Milam Building, giving Marriott higher visibility in a geographic area where we previously had few accounts. The Hospital Division is also expanding. Profits were up for the year and a number of new accounts were signed, including the large Duke University Medical Center in Durham, North Carolina; Victoria Hospital in Miami; Morton Hospital in Taunton, Massachusetts, near Boston; and St. Agnes Hospital in Philadelphia. The School and College and Vending Divisions had earnings declines in fiscal '74, but both are budgeting for better results this year. FAIRFIELD FARM KITCHENS: Our giant food production facility near Washington continued its profitable operation in fiscal 1974. A great many internal efficiencies and increased shipments to company facilities in the eastern half of the United States contributed to this success, and we think FFK is now "in the black" to stay. Our new retail salad dressing program is doing well in Washington, D. C, and Miami, Florida. THEME PARK DIVISION: Construction on the first of three planned "Marriott's Great America" regional theme parks got underway in October of 1973 in Santa Clara, California, with a spectacular ground-breaking ceremony. Opening of the park has been set back due to highway construction delays and is now set for early spring of 1976. Our Chicago-Milwaukee park, in the town of Gurnee, Illinois, is also under construction and will open in the summer of 1976. No date for starting construction of the Washington-area park, at Manassas, Virginia, has been set as yet, but we expect to move ahead soon. We are enthusiastic about the prospects for this new business, and for the contribution it will make to the long-term success of the company. There is an excellent future for this type of family-oriented entertainment and recreation. In 1964 about 16 million Americans visited theme parks. By 1976, when we open our first park, this number should jump to about 75 million. With their bicentennially-ap- propriate American heritage theme, and their trans-continental market span, we expect our "Great America" parks to be a major national factor in this profitable and growing leisure time industry. 10 The Restaurant Operations Group projects strong growth for fiscal 75 with about 100 new operations to be added. All in all, fiscal 1975 should be another good year.
