Dear Hiring Manager,

I am eager to learn everything there is about the Food Service Manager position for Crossover Software, the leader in software and technology systems. My specialty is to customize food menus for the food goals and budgets of my employer. I will work with you directly to determine the right ingredients, vendors and menu items for your team to ensure they remain productive, happy and healthy without breaking the bank.

My previous employer, Flagship Engineering, was a wonderful opportunity to fine-tune my food service managerial skills. I managed a food budget of $2.5 million annually for both daily food service and special company events. My services would feed an average of 815 people each day and over 2,000 per event. It was also my responsibility to select vendors, manage food staff and to provide customized meeting food service for elite guests.

During my previous position, I was tasked with the goal of cutting food costs by 12%, reducing food waste by 50% and creating a menu that incorporated healthier items that employees would actually eat. My aggressive initiatives resulted in reducing food costs by 14% and food waste by 62%.

Thank you for your time and consideration regarding the Food Service Manager position. I have been working diligently to create new menu items that reduce the use of meat without compromising flavors and nutrients that can be a significant asset to the productivity and health of your employees. I also strive to continue to learn new cooking techniques and methods to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables as often as possible in new and exciting ways.
