Culinary Career Outlook

The culinary arts industry is as big as it is diverse, presenting culinary arts school graduates with the opportunity to pursue careers in a variety of locations and work environments. Common culinary establishments include restaurants, hotels, wineries, bakeries, schools, private households, spas and more.

Nationally, the job outlook for culinary professions is muted, with the Bureau of Labor Statistics projecting single digit employment growth between 2012 and 2022 for several occupations, including chefs (5%), food service managers (2%), pastry chefs (2%), and hotel managers (1%). However, these nationwide statistics are misleading. Although the overall demand appears to be tempered, culinary arts professions remain in demand in numerous states throughout the country, especially in Idaho, Texas, Arizona and Colorado.
