Mr. Justin Clarke
Human Resources Manager 
33 Fox Lane
New York, NY 98989

Dear Mr. Clarke:

Please consider this letter as formal notification of my intent to resign from my position as a Waiter from Foodies on a 1-week notice, effective September 15.

Working with Foodies was a pleasant experience. In fact, I enjoyed working in an environment conducive to learning as well as a better group of colleagues.

I put many hours of thoughtful consideration before I decided to leave. Many angles made me feel that my decision to resign may not be good. But after much deliberation, I realized that I need to move on due to a domestic problem.

I am sad to leave Foodies, a place that taught me so much and developed me professionally. I have learned all that I know about the hospitality and restaurant businesses at Foodies.

Thank you very much for the guidance you have provided throughout my tenure. I wish you and my colleagues all the best in your future endeavors.

Please let me know if there is anything that I can do to assist in hiring and training for someone to replace me.
