The level of employment in this occupation depends on the trends that influence food services, which are sensitive to economic conditions.

In addition, the restaurant industry is also subject to competition from the retail sector, which is diversifying its service offering by delivering "ready-to-cook" meals and opening fast-food or ready-to-eat food counters. However, the improved tourism outlook in Québec should allow some stability in this occupation in the medium term.
