Hello, My name is Ralph Anderson. Enclosed is a copy of my resume. I am interested in a management position with your company. The experience that I have consists of 19+ years in the food service industry. I am able to adapt to change by taking new experiences head on.

Setting very high standards and providing my staff with a structured environment develops them to have a sense of pride and self confidence that is displayed in their everyday performance. Following through with the decisions that I make is how I gain confidence through my staff. A strong presence of leadership combined with the passion to turn my creative culinary ideas into profits gives me the advantage to be at the top in my profession.
