$ALES $TARS trains front of house staff to recognize opportunity at every table, inform guests what's unique & special about your restaurant & provide superior service that brings them back again and again.  The check average difference between an "ORDER TAKER" and a trained "$ALES $TAR" represents about $15,000, times 15 servers - OR approximately $200,000 in potentially lost revenue if training is neglected.  $ALES $TARS is just $97 for a 1-year membership and pays for itself in just one table turn, so there is tremendous return on investment.  The program includes a series of 3 training modules (each about 20 minutes in length) which can be viewed individually or in entirety.
