I can coordinate with the vendors to make sure deliveries arrive on time and I have the ability to estimate the needs of the restaurant based on past sells and predictions. I possess very strong analytical and decision-making skills along with the ability to multi-task and manage my time wisely. I am confident that I can be a valuable addition to your restaurant.
