In this section, the food items that have been purchased and brought to the hotel are received by checking the quantity, quality and price.
In large hotel businesses, this department is usually subordinate to the purchasing directorate.
This section should be close to the kitchen and storage areas.
It is mostly located at the back of the hotel and has an area where incoming goods can be unloaded.
There should also be a room where the control of the food materials coming to the hotel can be done.

Storage Section:
 
Considering the purpose of use in a hotel business, two main groups of warehouses, called main warehouses and kitchen underarm warehouses, emerge.

When the kitchen requests materials from the warehouses, a request slip is filled in and this receipt is signed by the kitchen manager, and the material is output from the warehouse to the kitchen.
In large hotel establishments, each preparation and cooking unit usually has its own warehouses.
These warehouses can be at different temperatures according to the food material to be stored.
The employees of the unit using the warehouse and the kitchen manager in general are responsible for these warehouses.
 
Preparation and Cooking Sections:
