    A Golden Treasure Every Restaurant Manager Must Own!

    The first edition was an invaluable reference. This edition packs in every critical piece the first edition had, plus tons more information. This book has the relevant information needed to be successful in the restaurant industry. What is truly unique is that ALL of the information you need is all in one source, plus a companion CD rom of forms and charts. The book even expands into development of websites, email marketing and other "new" management and promotional campains. Clearly - money well spent - if there is a better resource out there, I have yet to find it, and this new edition is unprecendented in the wealth, detail and useability of the information.
