The Main Course
on Dining Etiquette

step-by-step guide to
dining with confidence
in the 21st century

Providing a comprehensive, industry-standard training program for the front-of-house teams at all of your property's foodservice outlets promotes consistency in service and provides more flexibility for F&B management to move staff from venue to venue to ensure quality service and ease staffing inconsistencies. This training is appropriate for all restaurant concepts, from buffets (heavy focus on beverage service, table maintenance and bussing) to fine dining. Here are our suggestions for the most effective programs for your training needs and goals. Please use the links provided for more details on each training program or product.

Private & Public Country Clubs
Business / City Clubs

Hotel & Resort - Independent Owner/Operators & Franchisees
 
We realize that your staffing is often done on a seasonal basis and it's hard to justify (to your board of directors) a staff training program. We also know that club members can be some of the most demanding diners anywhere -- and expect high level service. So we strongly suggest that you consider the following waitstaff training for your own property, in conjunction with a neighboring club or suggest that your club managers or operators association sponsor group training as a pre-season development program.

If you own or operate several hotels with restaurants within one state or region, we encourage you to consider a "train-the-trainer" program similar to one we presented for an operator of five Best Western properties:

The owner contracted us to train the restaurant staff at one location and, at our suggestion, invited the restaurant managers, supervisors and lead servers from all of his other properties around the state to participate in the training. We provided all managers with a copy of our training manual, The Main Course on Table Service, along with a CD of the accompanying instructor's manual.

These representatives were then able to bring the skills and information they learned back to their individual properties and implement the program.

Here's additional information on the type of training we recommend --

Independent Restaurants/Catering Retirement Communities
Host a Main Course on Table Service Bootcamp and/or Professional Polish Workshop at your property and invite other restaurants or catering operations to send their staffs and managers. This allows you to share the cost of our training fees and travel expenses and make it even more affordable to provide a training program for your staff.
