Re: Restaurant Manager, Advertised on Monster

Dear Ms. Jones:

If you are searching for a dynamic, hands-on and award-winning restaurant manager for DEF Restaurant on Broad Street, please consider my strong qualifications.

Beginning at age 16, I have worked in nearly all facets of food and beverage service. Following work as a busser, dishwasher, line cook, waiter and host/maître de within casual and fine-dining restaurants, I was recruited to serve as assistant manager for Riverside, XYZ Restaurant Group’s flagship 4-star restaurant.

Within three years I was promoted to general manager of Riverside, and last year the board of directors requested that I lead the turnaround of Dogwoods, the group’s fine-dining property.

Rewarded with two “President’s Awards” during my tenure at XYZ, my guest-first mentality and innovative approach to restaurant management have delivered:

  • 18% revenue growth (last fiscal year) by launching new catering operations, restaurant concepts and dining options capitalizing on the latest culinary trends.
  • 8% margin increase in one year by improving cost controls, minimizing waste, negotiating food costs and optimizing staffing.
  • Triple the number of social media followers by introducing the company’s first digital marketing program.


I excel at building performance-driven cultures and supervising teams of up to 50 focused on service excellence and profit-goal attainment. If my track record and passion for F&B excellence are a close match to your needs, please call me at 555-555-5555. I hope to hear from you soon.
