The company we chose to do our walk-through audit on is the St. Charles Deli. There are a few key reasons as to why we chose this restaurant. First, the deli is in close proximity to where we live and have class, making it a convenient place to audit. Secondly, since it is so close, we have been there before and noticed that they could make improvements on their service quality. Lastly, seeing that the deli is located in Tech Square, its customer base is generally Tech students, and we felt this would be a good opportunity to hear the opinions of our fellow students.

During the summer months that school is not in session the deli’s hours are 7:30 am to 2:30 pm, and is closed on weekends. St. Charles’ change in hours based off school semesters shows how they rely heavily on the student market. They vary their service delivery depending on their customers.

The first section of our survey gathers demographic information about the customer. With this information we can identify any possible trends regarding service delivery to specific markets, such as students, and whether this demographic information could help us determine what particular aspects are most important to students in a restaurant.
