Restaurant Manager

As a restaurant manager, you take on a central position in a gastronomy business. You take care of internal organisation, employees, orders, and accounting. Above all, you are the first point of contact for your guests and ensure the service runs smoothly. One of your biggest responsibilities is to find the right balance between your guests’ wishes, your employees’ needs and the business’ interests. 


As a chef, you have a firm grasp on your kingdom, i.e., the kitchen. You lead your team, coordinate activities, and decide what will be on the menu. You are also responsible for administrative tasks in the background such as ordering and checking the goods. As a professional in the food & beverage sector, you are also prepared to pass on your knowledge to employees and trainees. This job requires working with all the departments in a hotel or with restaurants.   

Food & Beverage Manager

Food and beverage managers are in charge of the economic side of restaurant management. Together with the restaurant manager and the chef, you calculate budgets, design the menu, and coordinate grocery shopping. You are also responsible for monitoring quality, hygiene, and compliance with legal requirements.
