Violet Reese

Kitchen Crew

Captain Cook’s

8108 Helm Street

Saint Paul, MN 19933

(000) 258-7454

December 21, 2016

Mr. Wesley Brent

Human Resource Manager

Dear Mr. Brent:

I have recently been faced with a series of personal challenges which leave me no choice but to resign from my position as Kitchen Crew for Captain Cook’s. Respecting the fact that my contract states that I have to provide a one month notice of my intention to leave, I would like to inform you that January 21, 2017 will be my last working day here.

A recent trip to the doctor’s followed by extensive bloodwork and other tests, revealed that I have an autoimmune disease (SLE RA), which may cause me not being able to work properly over the last few months. Since people suffering from this need to operate in controlled environments, it will be impossible for me to continue working in a place that requires one to be on his or her feet constantly. I have enjoyed working at Captain Cook’s, and have learnt so much from my experience that it is almost painful to think that I will not be working here for much longer.

I would like to extend my thanks to you for providing me with such a great opportunity. I wish you luck for all your future endeavors.

Karen Horrender

Manager, Company Name

City, State, Zip Code

Dear Mrs. Horrender,

This letter is to inform you of my resignation as chef of the Night Out Restaurant effective two weeks from this date. I have recently been offered the opportunity to join the staff of a prestigious cooking school in Paris, France and feel that I must take advantage of this opportunity.

The time I have spent at Night Out will always stay with me as I have made many lifelong friends with staff members and patrons. The overwhelmingly positive response to my cooking has been a source of pride and inspiration for me for many years. I will never forget your kindness and I will never forget what Night Out and its customers have done for my career.

I have discussed all of the details of running the kitchen with my sous chef Douglas Arter and recommend him as my replacement. Douglas is a professional who will maintain the Night Out’s reputation and help the business to grow.

Until the end of September, I will be available at 000-000-0000 if you need more details. I will always be available by email at email@email.com. Please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely Yours,

Chef Josue Ortega

I have recently been offered a position elsewhere that I believe will better help me to reach my career goals, and have decided to accept.

I hope that my moving on from the restaurant will not cause any inconvenience to you or the customers.

Feel free to call me any time at (555)-555-5555 or email me at [email] if you would like to discuss this matter with me further and I will return messages as quickly as possible.

I have enjoyed working at ABC Family Restaurant and will miss the great environment and staff.

I wish ABC Family Restaurant continued success and thank you for your patience and cooperation with me at this time.

How to write a Resignation letter for Kitchen Staff

Resigning from one’s place of work as a Kitchen Staff, for most restaurants and companies, will require a resignation letter. 

A letter of resignation is a formal letter that documents and informs your employer about your decision to resign and no longer work for them, and it is a final effort to express your decision to leave your job.  

The letter was originally in the form of handwritten or typed out letters that were mailed to the HR manager or your employer; however, today most employees email their employers and HR managers of their notice.

According to GreatSampleResume, a letter of resignation allows you to “maintain your professionalism by going through the proper process of resignation.”

Based on restaurant/company policies, you can either write and mail the letter to your manager or sending across a brief email to the manager/supervisors should suffice. 

It is advised that you hand in your letters at least two weeks before the date of departure or the date you wish to stop coming to work as it gives your employers enough time to look for a replacement and also allows for transitions to take place. 

In the case that you faced conflicts during your time there, the letter should be formal and polite in order to protect your reputation with an aggressive letter that could hurt your future prospects of employment. 

Leaving this on a neutral ground is important so that you can maintain your network of connections that could help your career. 

Let us look at a few things that are crucial aspects of writing a resignation letter:

Sender and Receivers details

The first thing that you include in your letter are the details of the receiver; that is, the name and position of your HR manager followed by the address of your workplace.


Christine D’souza

Easy Days Nursing Home

44 Madhya Marg

New Delhi, 437097 (indeed)

In some letters, you include the name and address of the sender first followed by that of the name and position of your HR manager followed by the address of your workplace.


Susan Holmes

Kitchen Staff

987 Crazy Legs Avenue, Apt. 34 

Los Angeles, CA, 91054


February 17, 2019

Linda Lester

HR Manager

XYZ Restaurant

90000 Care Road

Los Angeles, CA, 91054 (RequestLetters)

If you are writing your resignation letter via email, you need not write the senders or receiver’s addresses. However, you should make sure that you put your contact details in the mail.

Introduction and notice of resignation

The next element is the body of the letter which begins with your addressing the receiver of the letter and clearing putting across the intent of the letter and your notice of resignation. 

In this part, you can also include the period of your notice that you will be serving as per your employment contract.


I am writing to inform you of my resignation as Kitchen Helper at Easy Days Restaurant,  effective two weeks from today. My last day of work will be on 30th Oct’ 2021. (indeed)

Reason of resignation

When it comes to disclosing the reason for your departure, there is no explicit need to add in the reason for your resignation. 

However it is it is advisable that there should be a cause to disclose why you are resigning, your reason should be neutral and something that is unrelated to your experience at work so as to maintain a positive relationship with your employer.


My final day of employment will be May 30, 2015. I have made the decision to return to college to pursue a degree in business and will need to focus on my studies.


I have decided to take this step so that I can better tend to my family’s health needs.

A statement of gratitude

Resignation letters are the last professional impression an employee can make on their employers and colleagues, so it is advised that the letter remains neutral and warm while highlighting positive experiences you have had while working for them. 

A warm resignation letter also ensures that you are able to maintain a positive relationship with your former place of work just in case you wish to work with them again. 

Example letter:

Working at Easy Days has been a rewarding experience and I have enjoyed my time working with you. I thank you for the training and opportunity to grow with you in my career. (indeed)

Transition details

To maintain your professional attitude at work, you should include what you will be doing to help ease the transition of roles with your successor during the notice period as well as contact information. 


If you feel it would be helpful, I would be happy to assist with the hiring and training of my successor over the next two weeks. Please contact me if you have questions. My email address is ssmith@gmail.com and my cell phone number is 9745474523.(indeed)


Close the letter using polite words and include your contact details. 


Respectfully yours,

Ashwin Mehta
