Ms. Helena Chang
I’m writing to you with regards to applying to the waitress role I saw on [Website Name]. With over five years of experience providing excellent service to diners at quality establishments, I know that I’m a strong candidate to fill out your team.
While working as a waitress at the Sapodilla’s in New Providence, I learned the ins and outs of the industry, including food handling techniques and how to take orders efficiently in a 120+ seat restaurant. I also served as a hostess and waitress at Mike’s Island Kitchen, where I was introduced to bussing tables
and proper cleaning techniques for maintaining a hygienic dining experience.
My accomplishments include:
• Memorizing Sapodilla’s wine stock and the appropriate entrée pairings, leading to daily wine sales averaging $180.
• Assisting in the training of 6 new waiters that helped boost the restaurant’s performance.
• Implementing new menu introduction strategies, increasing customer purchases of a win by 10% on average.
All my experience and skills would make me a great new addition to your establishment. I have attached my resume, which contains a more in-depth look at my experiences and skills. I look forward to hearing from you and would love to visit your restaurant for an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration.
