Dear Mr. XYZ

I am writing this letter to you regarding to a potential job opportunity in one of your restaurants in Atlanta GA.

Let me introduce myself. I am Anshul and we met on a flight from Tampa to Atlanta on January 2. By chance, I got a seat next to you and we started talking about different things. At the end, we had a discussion on restaurant business.  You own chain of restaurants and I have been working in this industry for almost 20 years and have played many roles.

I have rich experience in managing restaurants and I have managed many restaurants with more than 100 staff. Currently, I am working as a manager in one of the best restaurant chains of Atlanta. I have been with them for 3 years. So, I would be glad to join you if you can offer me the ‘General Manager’ post in one of your restaurants.

I have good contacts with corporate event organisers and I also have experience relevant for the position. I will be a value addition to your restaurants and can increase your business profitability in one year.

Look forward to hearing from you soon.

Yours sincerely
