PittsburgHosts Training

"Treat guests in a way they didn't even know they want to be treated."

That's the mantra of PittsburgHosts, a group of specially trained, front-line service providers in Pittsburgh who offer visitors world-class treatment during their stay.

Under the direction of Erica Kaehly and her company, Guest Service Solutions, hundreds of hospitality staffers throughout the region now know the best approach to make with the many visitors coming to the area. They understand how to provide the kind of service that goes above and beyond what is expected, leaving guests with an outstanding experience based on delivering the highest quality service possible. The R.K. Mellon Foundation is an enthusiastic financial supporter of customer service training in Pittsburgh.
