Using that thinking a butcher does not 'sell food'; it provides a 
service of cutting up meat into nice cuts and proportions, packing them 
and presenting them in a nice ambience.

A restaurant does sell food ... not always cooked. A restaurant without 
food will not have any customers, a restaurant with great food will have 
customers. It may use ambience and good service to help sell the food 
but the main thing you buy is food .. hopefully great food.
