The report analyzes the choice of three restaurants in order to meet client requirements. Client has a fixed budget, location, taste preference and other considerations. Hence the report attempts to understand the different client requirements and make a recommendation based analysis of data on the restaurants. Three forms of data are used, 1) data collected by means of direct observation, 2) data collected from tourist websites and restaurant websites and 3) data collected from expert opinion on the subject.
This is the first time client that is visiting Canada and hence relies completely on the recommendations that are going to be made in this report and hence this adds to the responsibility of the researcher. Marco wants to attend the ‘dine out’ activity of the annual food festival and hence would need to select one restaurant here. From data collected in a direct interview style conversation, and some of the problem constraints that will go into selecting the restaurant are as follows:
(Choice constrained to the List) Marco specifically likes seafood so the restaurant that must be selected must be one that specializes in seafood. However, selecting one that exclusively serves sea food might also be an issue, as client would also like to have some non-seafood alternatives in case his friends in Canada decide to join him.
(Location Limitation) Marco wants the restaurant to be near a tourist sport as he believes this way he would be able to get the most out of his tourist experience.
(Location Limitation) Marco is not familiar with the traffic situations in Vancouver and hence it has decided to stay downtown to be closer to the restaurants and tourist spots, and this constraints location selection.
(Layouts and Tastes) Marco wants to select a restaurant that presents the Canadian ambience better during the food festival, and he wants to get a feel of the locality when he is in Vancouver. He comes from a major urban area in Houston in Texas and hence is looking to more than just visiting an urban spot.
