Dear (Mr. or Ms.) (Last Name),
As a quality-driven leader within the food service industry I am highly-skilled in fast-paced environments, able to quickly evaluate and react to constantly changing situations, and drive teams to provide superior customer service. My expertise has allowed me to identify, plan, and deliver initiatives that increased profits while simultaneously reducing costs.
- Negotiated a key vendor contract to realize a 14% savings on delivery costs.
- Analyzed the competition and integrated comparable specials to drive lunch sales up 28%.
- Increased sales 20% by introducing a staff incentive that encouraged sales of appetizers, beverages, and desserts.
I am respected by staff as an innovator, motivator, and visionary with a history of securing, building, and retaining key talent. I truly believe that a restaurant’s success lies heavily on the staff it employs. Therefore, it is essential to maintain high-levels of employee satisfaction in order to build loyal, and service-focused teams. With my “hands-on” leadership style and integration of employee incentives, I have repeatedly maintained the lowest staff turnover among a 32 restaurant region.
As you will see on the enclosed resume, my expertise and performance offers you the opportunity to hire a comprehensive, dedicated professional and I am confident that my strengths are the ideal match for the position of restaurant manager. I would appreciate the opportunity to meet with you to further discuss my qualifications and your needs.
