Visit to Algida Ice Cream Factory

We were very honored to  have opportunity to visit Algida Ice Cream Factory in Veszprém. Under the leadership of Professor Zoltán Kovács -who is the teacher of our Logistics class- we arrived at the factory on 13th of May 2019 at the agreed time. Our Professor believes the visit will be very helpful for our better study and deeper understanding of this course. The factory is located in Veszprém on the outskirts of a similar industrial park. The slight of the factory touched me deeply. Unfortunately the weather was cloudy accompanied by rain but this did not reduce the enthusiasm for students about to enter the world-famous Algida ice cream factory. While waiting for the staff to confirm our identity and give us permission to pass, I was observed the very rigorous inspection procedures of the factory. The pay special attention for the entry and exit persons and vehicles. Upon entering the factory, we found that, unlike ideas, it is not full of crowds with people and loud machines. Instead of it was like a pleasant environment of a small forest. Under the guidance of road signs and the staff, we quickly arrived at the building where ice cream is produced.

First we went to the conference room and after a little waiting we were welcomed by the enthusiastic reception staff and the managers responsible for managing the several departments of the factory.They presented the operation of the factory in detail such as the main business model and the relevant information in transportation. Our teachers also explained and demonstrated the similarities in the Logistics class. At the end of the presentation, the manager of the safety management department introduced us some of the “golden rules” and precautions before the visit. We were divided into three groups and took turns to visit. During the waiting period, we were fortunate to have tasted different varieties of Algida ice creams.

Before we entered we had to wear masks, headgear, earplugs, goggles and disposable overshoes, and at last we had to clean and disinfect our hands which ensures that we can do the visit safely and smoothly. We visited the temporary warehouse, production workshop, packaging workshop and the office that monitors the operation of the production machine. The environment inside the factory is very clean, and the workers are also in order. It was good to see all the staff were smiling, maybe this is the magic of Algida ice cream!

The visit was very successful and we enjoyed it. We would like to thanks to Algida Ice Cream Factory and professor Zoltán Kovács can give us such an unforgettable experience!

Field trip to Lotus Therme in Héviz

On May 16 we had the opportunity to make a visit to Lotus Therme Hotel in Hévíz, the only 5 star hotel in the area.

During such a grimy day it was a pleasure to be greeted with a smile by the staff. We just waited a bit before the tour around started. After a short introduction of the hotel we were taken to the backstage, the part that guest never experience and where everything happens.

As soon as we crossed the door meant only for the staff, the decoration changed from charming and welcoming to a functional Brutalism. We walked around the spotless, and surprisingly not hot, kitchen and the back door. Everybody were busy in their normal activities but still had the time to smile at us with some degree of curiosity. A woman making a cake told us how she has been working there for 15 years as well as her husband who was a chef.

We passed through the employees area where they change their clothes, get the supplies for their work and even where they eat. They treated us with some coffee and delicious biscuits while answering our questions. We learned the difficulties to find the right staff since even the cleaning staff had to speak English or some other language to some degree to the kind of guest they usually receive.

Afterwards we were able to see the hotel itself. We visited the restaurant when the breakfast was about to be over, so we could see a bit of the culinary offer they had. Then we were taken to 3 rooms that were not the star of the place. This title belonged to their thermal pools and spa section. With outdoor and indoor pools where guests could relax in the warm water, all kind of massages available and even a salt cave, this hotel is a great place to spend a few days improving one’s health.

We ended our visit with a warm farewell from our guide and took a last picture in front of the hotel before going back to Veszprem.

The Ritz-Carlton, Budapest – Report

The hotel with the rich history, strong motto and clear aim – that is what may be said about Ritz-Carlton Hotel, the part of the Marriott chain. Located in the center of Budapest, near the most popular sightseeing attractions, Ritz-Carlton serves ladies and gentlemen, showing them the respect and treat them the way they should be treated.

Tourism Management MA students came there for a trip with Service Quality Management Class to learn how to operate the one of the most luxurious hotels in Budapest. We met the HR manager in the lobby. She asked us how was the trip to Budapest that helped us to feel more comfortable. Even if we know that it is her job, it could break the ice and set the contact between us.

She asked us to come to the bar section of the hotel to watch the presentation about the history and the operation of the hotel. She offered us water, still and sparkle. HR manager was talking about the very beginning of Ritz. We could learn some new facts about the founder and his dream of running a luxurious hotel, how the hotel was struggling during the World War II and how successful it is now.

Then we came back to modern time so we learned what Ritz-Carlton work for. “We are ladies and gentlemen serving ladies and gentlemen” – which is the motto of the hotel. She explained us that ladies and gentlemen, who are serving, is the personnel of the hotel. And they should act, think and actually be the ladies and gentlemen. Ladies and Gentlemen, who receive the service, are guests of the hotel who should be treated exactly like Ladies and Gentlemen. You can feel it everywhere in Ritz-Carlton.

The personnel of Ritz-Carlton confessed that they make their guests feel special with a lot of different ways: they have to know the names of guests, their preferences and etc. We were given an example, if the customer uses services of Ritz-Carlton in Paris, the information about the guest can be received to the hotel in Budapest, so if that certain guest comes to Budapest, they are already aware of their needs, so if they know they like cappuccino, they will get cappuccino, not anything else. That shows Ritz-Carlton as a user-oriented accommodation provider.

We visited the hotel, but unfortunately, we did not have the opportunity to see all types of rooms, because was full-house in the hotel. However, we were still lucky and we could see and check out at least a standard room. The room is big, with the softest mattress from the USA. Each room provides mini-bar, coffee-machine with coffee filters and kettle, iron and equipment to clean shoes. Also you can find there the list which a guest can fill in case if they need something from the cleaning ladies, so they can prepare everything you need by the time it should be done.

We also could check the club lounge, “a hotel in the hotel” of Ritz-Carlton. The place where business meetings can be held, where you can have calm time with your partner and nobody is going to disturb you. It is the additional service they offer, so it has to be booked in advance so they can prepare everything for better work of you there.

Another thing which is new there, is the SPA. Firstly, it is located on the 8th floor of the building. Secondly, they have a pool there. HR manager told us they are really proud to have the pool on the top floor. They also have procedures rooms, manicure offers and gym.

The hotel is 5* hotel and once guest gets there, they can feel it everywhere. Carpets, well-looked staff, smells, luxury design and atmosphere already treat you like you are The Queen of England.

Ritz-Carlton has its own steps of service. There are the following:

  1. A warm and sincere greeting. Use the guest’s name.
  2. Anticipation and fulfillment of each guest’s needs.
  3. Fond farewell. Give a warm good-bye and use the guest’s name.

As you can see the personalization of the service is which leads Ritz-Carlton to be on top of the accommodation provider. Everyone who took part in the trip was inspired and impressed with the decoration in the hotel, warm greetings and pleasant communication with the staff. We got a lot of attention, everyone was friendly with us and they were ready to help and answer all questions we might have.

The trip took two hours but during this time Ritz-Carlton could make us fall in love with their hotel. At least with one, in the heart of Budapest.

A program a Pannon Egyetem Gazdaságtudományi Kara által elnyert az Emberi Erőforrás Támogatáskezelő által támogatott “A hazai Tudományos Diákköri műhelyek és rendezvényeik” című projekthez (NTP-HHTDK-18-0020) kapcsolódóan valósul meg.
