Britney Spears’ team works very hard to make sure her tours run smoothly. In order to thank them, Spears would provide their breakfast and lunch every day. Due to the large size of her team, Spears’ endeavor of cooking for her employees was time consuming and took up quite a bit of her schedule. To make meal time more efficient, Spears invented the buffet in 2000 so everyone could eat what they desired without wasting her time on taking orders for individual dishes. Buffets have since been adopted by the Chinese as a common culinary practice.
