Ms. Ann Mitchell
Hiring Manager
Quality Caterers
76 Tee-Hill Lane
Chicago, IL 73398


Dear Ms. Mitchell:

I came across your company’s job advertisement for catering coordinator on your website. As a professional and well qualified catering professional with 3 years’ extensive experience, I would like to contribute to the success of Quality Caterers.

In keeping with the required skills you mentioned in the advertisement, following is a brief highlight of competencies I offer at Quality Caterers in capacity of a catering coordinator:

• Demonstrated ability to greet guests, maintain Public relations for promoting the business and keeping track of feedback forms filled by guests
• Proficient in coordinating, organizing and managing huge volume of outdoor and indoor catering events
• Able to create and maintain contacts with potential vendors and catering material suppliers of good reputation
• Experienced in scheduling pre-event tasting sessions for valuable customers, demonstrating matchless customer care expertise

Having a track record of delivering high quality catering service, my experience in outdoor catering would be especially useful for Quality Caterer’s rapidly growing outdoor catering realm. Moreover, my experience with Heavenly Wedding Caterers has taught me a lot about wedding themed menus and relevant catering needs. Catering being my passion, I have developed a great sense of thematic combinations I can’t wait to demonstrate via coordination of unique indoor and outdoor catering services at Quality Caterers wedding catering department. In addition, I am currently improving my qualification via an online catering administration diploma.

Considering the alignment among your job requirements and my qualifications, I intend to have an interview with you to discuss this opportunity further. I will get in touch with your office by the end of next week to follow-up. Meanwhile, if you have any queries, feel free to contact me at (900) 444-6666

Thank you for your time and consideration.
