      Career Portrait

      According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), “Employment of food service managers is expected to decline 3 percent from 2010 to 2020, as the number of eating and drinking establishments opening is expected to decline from the previous decade. Despite these reductions, new employment opportunities for food service managers will emerge in grocery stores and other retail and recreation industries to meet the growing demand for quick food in a variety of settings.

      Additionally, the BLS states, “Those with a degree in hospitality, restaurant or food service management should have the best job opportunities.”
