Dear Mr. Howe:

Upon discovering your posting for a Assistant Manager, I quickly decided to submit my resume for your review. As a motivated and organized professional with solid experience and a focus on customer service excellence, I am prepared to significantly contribute to McBailey Grill’s goals in this role.

My background includes leading restaurant operations, teams, and processes to drive business and customer service success in managers’ absences. From training staff and overseeing day-to-day routines to monitoring food/labor costs and handling daily cash counts and deposits, I excel at managing teams, driving revenue enhancement, and stimulating maximum levels of customer service and satisfaction.

Highlights of my experience include…

  • Responsible for opening and closing functions, cash counts and deposits, employee hiring and training, inventory control, and order processing in consecutive assistant management positions with Truman Burgers, The Plum Pit, and Chickory’s BBQ.
  • Supported general managers in planning and executing monthly labor and food cost goals through efficient shift scheduling and minimal food waste.
  • Interviewing, hiring, training, disciplining (when necessary), and managing restaurant employees—including servers, bar staff, and kitchen workers—to drive restaurant success.
  • Demonstrating solid time management, communication, and multitasking skills to excel within fast-paced, customer-facing environments.

My skills in team and operational leadership have been finely honed, and I am confident my additional strengths will readily translate to your restaurant. The chance to offer more insight into my qualifications would be most welcome. Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
