Quite a few times, when guests enter the restaurant (new or old), they have some idea in mind what they want to eat. However often guests are open to suggestions and ask for servers’ specialty food or items. Many times guests are not really sure of what to order due to various choices available on the menu.

Suggestive Selling and upselling skills in the restaurant and food and beverage industry is about

1. understanding customer needs.

2. acting as a consultant and helping them in choosing the right products
