Quick Service Restaurant programmes

Whether you run the local takeaway or manage a 24-hour fast-food restaurant chain, the people you employ will make a big difference to your success. Unlike many businesses, you have just a few short moments of customer interaction to make a great impression and, unlike a traditional restaurant, you don’t have long to put something right if it does go wrong.

We offer professional skills and know-how for many different roles including: general manager, duty manager, owner/operator, food and beverage manager, restaurant manager, counter and service staff and barista plus many of the roles involved in running a kitchen.
