In the present time, ‘Customer Satisfaction’ or ‘Customer Experience’ is viewed as the key differentiator. Millennials make up the majority of customer volume in the food industry due to their eating habits and life style. Millennials are neophile where they are bold in attempting new food and restaurant service, at the same time looking for product and facilities that can satisfy their needs. The purpose of this research paper is to identify factors that influence millennials’ satisfaction of the café restaurants. This study will assist café operators to enhance product and service quality by focusing and addressing the factors identified.
