                                    Become a Food Services Manager

Food service managers typically need a high school diploma, but education requirements for individual positions may vary from no formal educational credential to a college degree. Employers may prefer to hire candidates who have postsecondary education, especially for jobs at upscale restaurants and hotels. Some food service companies, hotels, and restaurant chains recruit management trainees from college hospitality or food service management programs. These programs may require the participants to work in internships and to have food-industry–related experiences in order to graduate. Employment of food service managers is projected to grow 15 percent from 2020 to 2030, faster than the average for all occupations. About 41,400 openings for food service managers are projected each year, on average, over the decade. Many of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to different occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire. The median annual wage for food service managers was $59,440 in May 2021. Catering Sales Manager
