New Online Training Helps Restaurants Impress Travellers from China

Today, Travel Alberta’s free Global Ready – China training program adds Restaurant Ready to its series of online courses developed to help tourism businesses benefit from the growing number of travellers from China.

There is a Chinese saying that translated means “people regard food as their heaven” which shows just how important eating is in Chinese culture. Restaurant Ready, Travel Alberta’s newest online course, delves into the culture and customs that influence Chinese travellers’ food and beverage preferences and helps restaurant owners and servers generate new revenue from this growing market. The course covers topics like the types of dishes Chinese travellers from different regions of the country prefer, their beverages of choice, dining etiquette and service expectations. Restaurant owners will discover how existing menu items can be featured to help Chinese guests make their dining decisions.

With tips, access to the Global Ready – China handbook and other valuable resources, this training is applicable for owners, managers and restaurant staff.
