However, only a few businesses are able to provide better and non-homogenous value for the customers.

Online survey questionnaires were distributed to the customers and 155 samples were gathered from March to June 2018. The findings showed that atmosphere and service quality factors had positive effects on customer satisfaction, while the variety of menu was not significant to the satisfaction, the fact that the satisfied customers would likely have the intention to revisit and spread word-of-mouth
