For this reason, employers usually look for experienced candidates with management and supervisory skills.
The level of employment in this occupation depends on the trends that influence food services, which are sensitive to economic conditions. On the one hand, the business environment is very competitive and profit margins are low, resulting in a particularly large turnover of firms. On the other hand, despite the increase in household income and their discretionary spending budget, the amount spent on meals in restaurants has not really increased. 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.
