New to the restaurant world

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi everyone!

I opened a restaurant about two months ago and the learning curve seems endless. I welcome any advice or suggestions.

I am in the process of looking for a new chef. We need a strong leader, with passion for their craft and creativity.

I had to remove our current chef for negativity and dependency problems. Not the environment I want for my restaurant. If you know anyone in the Wilmington NC area looking let me know.

Cheers!

Welcome to the forums.

 

I had been working in the industry for 20 years, in every capacity FOH/BOH, when I opened my restaurant and was still amazed to learn how much I didn't know. Yeah the learning curve is real and endless thumb.gif.

 

Good luck on your chef search. I wish I had some sage advice on finding quality employees, but on that subject, the years haven't made me any wiser. It is still a crap shoot because talk is cheap, anybody can do it.

 

The main thing I look for in potential new hires is attitude. That trumps experience in my book. Job skills, I can teach. Life skills (or lack of) have pretty much already been set in stone by the time they walk in my door.

 

Congrats on your restaurant. Enjoy!chef.gif
