In the prehistory of foodservice industry after Korean-War, diet-life of people lied in poor surroundings. After Korea gained independence, as the economy developed, the people's diet improved as well. The foodservice industry had also improved until now. This conceptual paper will discuss how the foodservice industry has historically changed and developed over the last five decades. The author divided the last 50years into six different stages; embryonic, introduction, high-growth, stagnation, low-growth, and transition. Until the year of 1974, the foodservice industry was in its embryonic stage. Between 1975 and 1985, it was in the introduction stage. Thirdly, from 1986 to 1995, it met high-growth period and after that it suffered hardship until 1999. It was a so-called stagnation stage.
