Subject: Application for the position of Food and Beverage Manager
Dear Ms. Suarez,
A hotel business thrives on the scrumptious meal and quality service. A visitor coming to a hotel for a casual lunch or dinner is potential to become a regular customer if these two things are looked after by an experienced and skilled management professional. That person could be me if you consider my application for a position of food and beverage manager at Cheryl's Hotel.
I have a degree in Hotel Management and been serving the hospitality industry for seven years. The best thing about my career profile is the opportunity given to me by Dine and Wine Restaurant. The owner, Mr. Jeffery Hamilton, had confidence in me and saddled me with the responsibilities of setting up the restaurant. I took this opportunity to heart and sweat a lot in making it the top ten restaurants in Asheville.
After achieving the success in setting up a restaurant, I have developed an hunger of extending my expertise. As there is not much of difference in managing a hotel and a restaurant, I can surely augment your customer database applying everything I have learned in my career. I can handle daily operations, plan budget, meet suppliers and negotiate with them on prices, streamline inventory and procurement process, offer personal care in ensuring very customer receive the best-quality service, cut down food waste, manage payroll and supervise staff.
I believe my experience and skills from hospitality industry will offer great value to your organization. Is it fine to call you next Monday at 11 am for an interview? I am available on my cell phone in case you have other plans. Thank you for your time.
