ESSENTIAL FUNCTIONS

The essential functions of the various crew member service positions within the restaurant are attached. In most cases, it is desirable for a crew member to be cross-trained in all the service positions.

Each position does not exist in every restaurant and sales volume dictates which positions will be used and for how long on each shift. Immediately before and after peak volume periods and during all "slow periods," it is customary for crew members to rotate into the other service positions that do not compromise food safety. This process simply means that during certain periods, a crew member may work several positions within a short period of time while adhering to food safety standards.

Delivering quality food within specific service time goals is fundamental to the nature of Cafe Express business. Each employee must be able to execute his / her position with a speed sufficient to contribute to the overall goals and objectives of the company.
