There’s a bounty of jobs in today’s restaurant industry. One of the largest private-sector employers, the industry employs nearly 13 million people, in both front-of-the-house and kitchen positions, according to the 2012 National Restaurant Association Restaurant Industry Forecast.
Also, the number of jobs for chefs, head cooks and food preparation and serving supervisors is expected to increase by nine percent through 2020, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics’ 2012-13 Occupational Outlook Handbook.
