Manners on the Go

We recently had the incredible opportunity to visit New York for Debra's birthday. We spent plenty of time in an airport and on the plane, fine dining restaurants, and buses. We had a blast, so we brought a little bit of New York back to Athens.

We would love to share our new ideas and memories with you at training in June.

Training Dates: June 20-24, 2016
The investment is five days of training and $5,800.00 (U.S.D.), effective through 2016. Prior to March 1st, there is a 15% reduction in tuition bringing the enrollment tuition to $4930.00 (U.S.D.)

Travel Etiquette

While you are travelling, you are constantly surrounded by people. It is important to consider this to make everyone's experience a pleasant one and to put your best foot forward. Here are some etiquette pointers to me mindful of:

Plane Etiquette:
  • Have your ID and boarding pass readily accessible
  • Take your seat as quickly as possible
  • Be patient when deplaning
Fine Dining Etiquette:
  • Check your coat
  • Allow host to direct you to your seat
  • Place your napkin in your lap
  • Wait for everyone to be served before eating
  • When deciding what utensils to use start from the outside and work your way inward
  • Dessert utensils are located above the dinner plate
  • Bread, butter, and salt and pepper are passed to the right
  • Eat from the left (bread and salad) and drink from the right
  • There are two types of dining, American and Continental dining, and both are acceptable
Bus Etiquette
  • Step aside before boarding to allow exiting passengers to depart
  • Fill from the back to the front
  • Give up your seat to an elderly person, pregnant women, and someone who is disabled


History of the Coat Check

The concept of the coat check was initiated by Albert Behar in the New York area shortly after the Great Depression. Mr. Behar noticed that customers put their coats on the back of their chairs and offered to store the coats for customers in a small room adjoining the restaurant.
