According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in five workers in the food service industry is 19 years old or younger.

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. School food service positions are plentiful in both the primary and secondary education system and at local colleges and universities throughout the United States. Other food service career opportunities are available in nursing homes, hospitals, hotels and major entertainment venues such as sports arenas and concert halls.

Growth throughout the food service industry is expected to remain brisk through the foreseeable future. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a conservative growth rate of eight percent per year across the food service industry through 2018. The National Restaurant Association is also quite optimistic about future restaurant employment. They expect employment in this sector to increase to 14.3 million professionals by 2022 � or 1.4 million additional jobs for chefs, cooks, food preparation workers, waiters and waitresses, dishwashers, bartenders and counter attendants.
