Welcome to iamWaitress

Thanks for checking out iamWaitress!  You may think this is a website just for waitresses…it’s not. Assuming you are in a leadership role at your restaurant or you are a server that wants to be the best, this site is for you.

iamWaitress wants to help you achieve every one of your restaurant goals.  You have a vision of what you want your restaurant to be, what  level you want to be, and when you reach it, you’ll want to go to the next level.  That’s the nature of successful business and of being human.

A great restaurant is built with a firm foundation.

Before you get to the meat and potatoes of creating the perfect restaurant team, there are fundamentals that you should consider. Here are three articles to help you think in a new way. Because new thinking helps create new teams.

Who is your BEST service professional?

The answer to this question is so important! Is it you? If not, then who is it? And, if you had to rate them on a scale between 1 and 10, what would you rate them? Whatever score you gave them is the highest score your entire restaurant can obtain– without external influences.

How can you get your entire service team to that high score? This is what you should be thinking about. How can you best utilize your best players?

“A restaurant can only be as great as the greatest person that works in it.”
–Duh
