Abstract

In this paper, Alison Morrison, of the University of Strathclyde, explores statistics and definitions associated with small businesses in the hospitatlity sector. The author looks at external and internal factors that may impact upon the economy, society and the environment and analyses the Sector's traditional and contemporary positioning within the industry structure. The conclusions drawn relate to whether or not small businesses represent an enduring or endangered phenomenon within the industry and the author suggests ways of shaping appropriate policy interventions relative to the support infrastructure of small hospitatlity businesses.
