Expectations are made up of past experience, word-of-mouth and needs/wants of customers
Unless Gap 5 is kept under check, it may result in lost customers, bad reputation, negative corporate image.
Gap 1-Not knowing what customers expect
•Employees unable to perform the service at the desired level
•Poor internal organisation , inadequate teamwork, employees not motivated, poor supervision
•Failure to match supply and demand
•Customers unaware of roles and responsibilities
•Inability to translate customer expectations into clear quality specifications
•Lack of management commitment to service quality
•Customer expectations thought to be unreasonable or unfeasible
•Absence of a formal quality programme (guidelines, standards)
•Poor service design
•Over-promising in advertising, personal selling or physical evidence cues
•Management wants to show services offered in best possible light
•Insufficient communication between marketing/sales & operations
•Inadequate market research

First hotel – a 60-room facility – in U.S. 1954
The name "Ramada" is derived from the Spanish term "rama" (meaning branch)and was applied to temporary open air structures called Ramadas.
Under Isbell's leadership, Ramada grew into one of the nation's largest lodging chains during the 1960s and 1970s with 100 Ramada Inns in operation by 1964.
During the 1970s, Ramada expanded into worldwide operation by opening new hotels in various European nations and on other continents.
Ramada developed a chain of restaurants, which were located inside the hotels in 1980s.
