To be an efficient F&B Manager or team lead is not easy and is riddled with many challenges. A good F&B manager motivates and empowers the team to demonstrate operational excellence with outstanding productivity, as well as efficiency and quality.
Internal communication processes and customer service should be well executed, and to
implement a motivating working environment, and credit a team by providing extra merit to
those who have made a significant, positive impact on operations. Managing and head
spearing a Food & Beverage department also requires one to showcase outstanding ability
in managing and improving KPIs, develop and enhance restaurant concepts, and streamline
important operational processes and leadership of the team.
The most integral for an F&B Team leader is to facilitate good leadership and
communication skills, take the lead, use your initiative, problem solve, mediate, motivate and above all, communicate with your staff on all levels. In addition, this team is responsible for serving F&B with exceptional service to customers, and setting tables. This includes
ensuring that all dishes match the order ticket including modifications and special requests,
and delivering the correct food to the corresponding tables. The team leader must also
encourage everyone to have great and responsive team-player attitude.
