In the busy world of restaurants, there is the front of house: the bar, servers, etc and the back of house: the cooks, dish washers, etc. In between these two groups is the Expeditors Food expeditors communicate orders and information between the front of house and back of house, making sure that food is cooked in the right order, quickly, and presented to the customer as perfectly as possible. Expeditors make sure the orders are being cooked in a timely fashion, so that all orders for a table are ready at the same time and make sure that once the food is cooked, servers run food to the table or window while it's warm and ready. They explain special orders to the cooks, and tell servers when the kitchen is out of a particular menu item. Expeditors are also in charge of the final presentation of the plate, making sure it is dressed and garnished correctly and free from smudges or spills. All questions/communications between staff and the line should be directed to and through the Expeditor.
