      Enhance Your Food & Beverage Operations Skills

      Food and Beverage Managers are at the heart of the hospitality industry. At the end of the day, a well fed customer is a happy customer. The well-trained food and beverage manager is the one who uses their combined creative and business skills to manage the customer side of a restaurant or bar and other foodservice establishments such as a high end retail store, café, hospital, or school foodservice.

      If you are looking to advance your food and beverage management career or gain new skills in this field, then the Certificate in Food & Beverage Operations Program at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh – Online Division might be perfect for you.

      The well-trained student will be able to create menus and determine the service needs and then lead the personnel to meet the customer needs. This is accomplished by having an ability to spot foodservice trends, awareness of customer needs, and a grounding in the technical aspects of managing a front of the house operation.

      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.”
