Abstract: Services marketing requires a balanced position and performance of internal marketing, external marketing and interactive marketing as they help to create a strong fit among employees, management and customers in a triangular (people) relationship.

The study on the service triangle performance of fast food firms was carried out using a positivist cross sectional survey that comprised 104 customers and 61 employees.
