Teamwork makes the dream work. But when you’re running a restaurant, it’s easier to think of your establishment as two separate teams: the front and back of house. If your restaurant was a ship, your back of house would be the engine room chewing up fuel to keep the place running. And your front of house would be made up of the deck and cabin crew. Each team performs a distinct role, but the ship needs them to work together to stay afloat.
