Dear [Mr./Mrs./Ms.] [Manager’s Name],
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 Longhorn Grill in Los Angeles, 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 Fancy Kitchen, where I was introduced to bussing tables and proper cleaning techniques for maintaining a hygienic dining experience.
My accomplishments include:
- Memorizing Longhorn’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 wine 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.
