Restaurant and Food Service Managers


According to the U.S. Department of Labor, jobs will grow as fast as the averge through 2024. Many job openings will arise from the need to replace managers retiring from the workforce. Also, population growth will result in an increased demand for full-service restaurants and, in turn, a need for managers to oversee them. As the elderly population increases, managers will be needed to staff dining rooms located in hospitals and nursing homes. Opportunities will also be good for managers in special food services such as schools, health care facilities, hotels, and other businesses that contract out their food service needs (especially nursing and residential care facilities). The demand for quick food is expected to grow, creating more jobs for food service managers in convenience and grocery stores, and in retail and recreation industries. More jobs are expected to open up in full-service restaurants and limited-service eating places. Those with bachelor's or associate’s degrees in restaurant, hospitality, or institutional food service management will have the strongest employment opportunities.
