Bussers and runners are invaluable in the food service industry. Their ability to be friendly to customers, take direction, and to be fast and accurate, can be the difference between a pleasant dining experience and a poor one. Busser/Runners are responsible for transporting food, beverages, condiments and utensils to diners outside of or in coordination with the deliveries made by the server. Busser/Runners are also responsible for being unobtrusive in the way they approach diners, so as to not interrupt the meal. They discretely inquire about whether a customer has finished with a beverage, side dish, main course or dessert, and then they carefully move that dish away without allowing food or drinks to spill on the table or on the diners. They may also wipe up spilled food and crumbs, and refill water glasses. They follow the lead of the server and supervisor.
