Inventory management is a crucial part of being a successful restaurant manager. Highlight for the interviewer how often you complete inventory and your methodology. If you keep checklists and spreadsheets, be sure to discuss that method of organization. If your stock has helped your employer to save money, it's great to talk about this as well.
"In the past two positions I have held, I have managed the bar and restaurant inventory. This included food, drink, and supplies. When I first began my current role, my employer was over budget on food costs by 15%. I was able to cut waste and streamline the ordering process, resulting in a 25% cost savings month over month."
"As I am new to my experience in the restaurant industry, I do not have a lot of exposure to tracking inventory. While attending my business degree, I did take some coursework related to inventory tracking and accounts receivable. I look forward to taking this knowledge to work for your restaurant."
"I bring a great deal of inventory experience over the past eight years. I like to take sole responsibility for inventory so that I can work on establishing an efficient process. I am prepared to reorganize the inventory closets and set up a new system if needed."
