Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],
My name is [Your Name], and I found your job listing on LinkedIn. I’ve been working in the food service industry for over nine years, and I love it. [Target Company] is one of the highest-regarded French restaurants in the Minneapolis metropolitan area, and I would be thrilled to become part of the [Target Company] team.
It’s essential for people in the food service industry to intimately understand the different roles each employee must play in order for a restaurant to run smoothly. As a waiter at Drive In Diner in St. Paul, Minnesota, I gained valuable experience working as both a waiter and team leader, where my night team maintained a 100% customer satisfaction rate for three consecutive years. I now work as a staff manager at the Dalles House Inn & Fine Diner in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin, where I successfully implemented a more efficient reservation system and train an average of 10 new employees per year.
I heard recently that [Target Company] is trying to reach the office worker demographic with tactics such as offering new, affordable lunch specials. After spending so much time in the industry, I have a variety of ideas about how to reach further into this demographic and also boost the rate of return customers to the restaurant.
I would be ecstatic to get the chance to interview with you and further outline how I can fit into the framework of [Target Company]. You can reach me at [PHONE] or by email at [EMAIL] at your convenience. I’m always free on Monday and Tuesday, but can be available on any day with advanced notice. Thank you for your time and consideration.
