Dear [Mr./Mrs./Ms.] [Hiring Manager’s Name],
I’m writing to you regarding the position of Head Chef, which I discovered on [Restaurant Name]’s website. I have over 10 years of related work experience, as well as training from two notable, New Orleans–based restaurants and a specialization in Southern cuisine. I’m capable of leading a team of kitchen staff in addition to offering world-class cuisine.
I’m currently the chef at Herbsaint in New Orleans where I’ve worked since 2015. One of my first tasks was to redevelop the entire menu, which increased sales revenue by 150%. I’ve also interviewed, hired, and trained all kitchen staff since 2015, and my hires improved operational flow by 47%. Thus far, I have maintained a 100% employee retention rate at the restaurant. In addition, I’ve developed a process that has reduced waste by 40% and improved supply turnover by 70%.
I’m confident that I have all the leadership and food preparation skills necessary to fulfill the role of Head Chef at [Restaurant Name]. I look forward to learning more about the opportunity and to discussing details with you. You can reach me by phone at (895)-555-555, or via email at email@example.com. I appreciate your time and consideration.
