Restaurant Manager Resignation Letter Sample

All of us have been through the difficult task of writing a resignation letter at least once in our lives. The uncertainty that comes with writing a letter of this nature is a great deterrent in writing a good one and leaving a last good impression. But uncertainty or not, a resignation letter has to be written if you are planning to leave a job.

Resignation letters may seem complicated to write but they should not be seen as something onerous to do. If you sit down and think, all you have to do is tell the truth when writing a resignation letter. Why do you want to leave? What made you decide on leaving? But all this needs to be written in a positive manner. While resignation letters may not be pleasant for employers on the whole, they need to consist of pleasant language to make the blow as easy as possible.

Dear Mr. Clinton:

The decision to leave Waffles has been a very difficult one to take as I have spent seven very happy years working as a restaurant manager here. Please accept this as a formal notice of my intent to leave; September 30 will be my last working day.

While I have never had any problems working at Waffles, I have been offered an opportunity which I believe is more in sync with my long term career goals. This new opportunity will provide me with great career progression; something that I have been looking for some time here.

Waffles has provided me with the best years of my life; I have not only learnt about the restaurant business but have also been trained in managing a busy restaurant and handling the many challenges that both customers and staff offer during each work day. This experience is something I am extremely grateful for; it will stay with me forever and will of course help me greatly in subsequent jobs.

As always, I am dedicated to my work until it is time for me to leave. If you would like me to prepare any handover notes or train my replacement, I am at your service. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your mentorship and support during these years. I will miss my staff and my work place immensely.
