A professional searching for a food service job in the restaurant industry will find a growing number of opportunities. The restaurant industry is the nation's second largest private sector employer and is predicted to represent ten percent of the total U.S. workforce by the end of 2012. This equates to approximately 12.9 million restaurant and food service related jobs. The National Restaurant Association expects total restaurant industry sales to top $632 billion in 2012. The higher the sales, the more restaurant and food service workers, managers and directors are needed.

Professionals looking for jobs in the food service industry need not consider restaurant food service alone. Food service jobs are found at education institutions, at medical facilities and other verticals within the hospitality space.
