It is important to know the other’s country dining etiquette when conducting business, because you want to ensure you do not insult or offend the other party. Different cultures have different dining practices that are viewed differently in various cultures. One practice that may seem unusual to people of other cultures is serving coffee in the beginning of the meal, (which is customary in the United States) and maybe viewed as peculiar by another culture. In other cultures it is customary to serve coffee at the end of the meal. When conducting business there is never a time where it would not matter to know a another cultures dining practice, because a person would want to be respectful of another person’s culture at all times, whether it is breakfast, lunch or dinner.
