Dear Mr. Johnson —

I look forward to talking with you regarding your restaurant. I've spent years in the food hospitality business and I'm comfortable with all the operations and functions of a restaurant. From ensuring that we aren't over-ordering inventory. To ensuring all food safety and state guidelines. Here are some of the things I've been able to do as a previous Restaurant Manager:

Worked alongside other store managers to assist in the service of more than 10,000 customers.
Was directly responsible for the management of all food inventory and prep.
Worked closely with executive chefs and servers to design and develop great dining experiences on a consistent basis.

I look forward to interviewing with you. If there is any information that you'd like to see that I didn't include in my application, please feel free to contact me and I will return that to you as soon as possible.
