Culinary Arts

The National Restaurant Association projects sales will increase by 4.9% in 2005. This impact is expected to exceed to 1.2 trillion dollars in sales alone. The industry currently employees over 12 million people. About 2 million more jobs will become available over the next 10 years. This makes the food service industry the largest retailer in the United States which comes out to 9% of all people employed in the US. Restaurants in Texas are also part of this economic engine of growth and project sales are expected to exceed 29 billion dollars. Each additional million spent in eating establishment will generate 41 jobs. These facts have made the restaurant industry an extraordinary career opportunity.
