Hospitality Guest Services

This course focuses on the delivery of quality service in a restaurant setting. Successful service is not just a matter of technical knowledge; restaurant service professionals must be able to manage information and people and to communicate effectively with a wide variety of guests. Effective guest service helps a restaurant to develop, maintain, and expand its business by retaining its current loyal client base and consistently attracting a new clientele. Collecting guest information is worthless unless put to good use enhancing service to guests. This course turns data into gold, when applied properly.
