Front of House
The front of house staff members in a restaurant are the face of the establishment. They are the employees that customers come in direct contact within the dining area, this may encompass the bar area and all supporting staff.
Back of House
The back of the house encompasses all the behind-the-scenes areas that customers will not see. This acts as the central command center in a restaurant because it’s where the food is prepared, cooked, and plated before making its way to the customer’s table.
