Dear Ms. Patricia Pierce,
I am applying for the Kitchen Supervisor position with Clover Restaurant Group and I have the skills and experience to be a great asset to your restaurant.
I worked as a cook for three years before advancing to the manager’s position. During this time, I learned what running a kitchen entails and I have acquired the skills to move into the supervisor’s position. I have very strong leadership skills with the ability to motivate and maintain a good working relationship with the staff.
As a manager, I interviewed, hired and trained new employees and monitored the performance of all kitchen staff. My experience includes purchasing new equipment when needed and taking care of all maintenance issues to keep the kitchen functioning at full capacity. I also have the experience and skills to plan menus and to help determine the prices to ensure they are competitive while still generating a profit.
I have excellent organizational skills with the ability to keep track of the inventory and to make sure all foods are rotated and organized to ensure freshness. I know and adhere to all health codes and regulations and I have the ability to ensure the restaurant meets or exceeds the state and federal health and safety standards. I understand that running a kitchen is much more than just ordering and preparing food for the guests and I have what it takes to make your restaurant thrive.
You can reach me for an interview by calling (555)-555-5555 and I am looking forward to hearing from you.
