Hrvoje Bujas: The waiter should be the main PR and salesman of the restaurant

first_imgPublished by: Hrvoje Bujas, business owner Black Egg, GoHome i Insure.me My great-grandfather Jakov Belamaric Pivalo was a waiter (or you “boss” of waiters in Krka, then a renowned hotel), he spoke 4 languages ​​(Hr, Eng, Ita and Njem.), He was always in a suit (at least that’s what my grandmother told me ), he loved his job, his profession, he was excellent and appreciated in that.So in the first half of the 20th century Šibenik had its own guild and waiters were a pillar of the then slow development of tourism…Today, the waiter is almost a sparrow, and the waiter is the one who has nothing else to do… as he finished college, he has no job, so here is a “poor” waiter.Sorry!The waiter should be the main PR and salesman of the catering facility, the one who presents the owner of the same, who brings him added value, who in a broader picture presents and develops our tourism as a whole.A waiter should become a profession that is valued, he speaks with due respect… after all, as a student I was a waiter “bloody” it’s a job, run here and there, wear, no working hours, and you see and hear everything…Only those who have a license and a school could be waiters, and they should be adequately paid for that.Ah… and our schools are below the level, only there would need a total rosada, not to mention Reform!last_img read more

With only two kids left at home, they decided it was now time for the family to downsize and are on the hunt for their next dream home. The expat Americans designed the luxury coastal house to have a Hamptons feel. “We are both from the Hamptons and brought a lot of that feel with us. We wanted the look and feel of the places we grew up,” he said. “It has a beautiful coastal feel and is a modern house for a large family that enjoys the waterfront lifestyle.”center_img The tasting room and wine cellar — wine not?
