Restaurants are typically divided into two major management areas: back of house (including kitchen, storage, and dishwashing areas) and front of house (the dining room, lobby, and any lounge or bar areas.) The person who oversees the latter area at a dining establishment is the front of house manager.

Hire, train, and supervise front of house staff, making sure they meet customer service and sales objectives.
Manage daily operations of the public areas of a theater, restaurant, or concert hall.
