Hi everyone! Just found this group after taking a hiatus from FOHBOH.

I am a consultant / trainer and my focus is on getting management to define service standards, establish a culture of excellence, and effectively communicate these to their staff. We can't train employees until we can train their managers!

Check out my website and blog at www.

There is evidence of new leaders in the hospitality industry being thrown into the deep end and left to either sink or swim. That’s hardly a "best practice”. Let's change the way new managers are cultivated for growth:

I am in need of a trainer in the Ithaca, NY area. I am in the process of opening a new restaurant and need a well organized traineer to head up the start up and eventually become a F.O.H. supervisor. This will be the second restaurant for us and we have 3 more planned so it will be a nice opportunity for the right person.

Hi everyone, so excited to finally find a forum for trainer information. I am a amazed that this much needed field for hospitality has been overlooked in the past few years. The basics of guest service have been sorely lacking in Chicago. I am questioned by many restaurant and hotel owners on why the "new breed" does not understand the basics. My answer is it starts with training. I tell everyone that ANYONE can "wait" tables but not everyone can "service" a table. I try to get everyone to use the word SERVERS. When people like a place they mention SERVICE. Just glad to be here

Hello everyone, I am sorry about not participating much here as I have gone back to college to further my education and there just isn't enough hours in the day.

Please enjoy and post away as this is a critical part of any successful business.
