Food is big business, offering a wide range of opportunities for anyone committed to high standards and creativity. The National Restaurant Association reports that in 2009 restaurant sales could grow to reach a record $566 billion. Currently there are more than 13 million people employed at more than 945,000 restaurants in the United States, excluding food service suppliers, which is a $38 billion industry. Food Services looks at the ins and outs of the business and helps readers identify the skills, attitudes, and connections they need to launch a successful career. This new volume features a wealth of useful information, including an overview of the current state of the food services industry, a breakdown of key jobs, tips for success, a glossary of industry jargon, and much more.
