Dear Ms. Blain:
This is with regard to the Restaurant Manager position at Food Hub that was recently advertised in The Tribune. Since the job description that you have supplied in the ad matches closely with my professional profile, I would like to offer my services in order to contribute to your continuing success.
I am a highly committed and passionate individual with seven years of leadership experience working as a Manager at Kinsley Food Court. Holding a supervisory role is not an easy job, however, I have perfected it to the extent that I now possess the capability of managing every aspect of the restaurant business. From coordinating activities between the kitchen area and the customer area to overseeing accounts, I have the business acumen to do it all. My people skills have been commended many times as I am able to work closely with suppliers and customers alike. Possessing a friendly demeanor and strong leadership skills, I have had the opportunity to start restaurant businesses from the very beginning and taking them to successful heights within the industry.
My ability to achieve 100% customer satisfaction and maintaining the restaurant’s image will go a long way to prove to be beneficial to Food Hub. I am enclosing my resume as a first step in the job application process and will call you after two weeks to follow up on it. Meanwhile, if you need to contact me, I’ll be available at (871) 707-7217.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
