The labour pool for this occupation primarily consists of individuals with extensive restaurant and food service experience. In fact, experience is an essential criterion for gaining access to this occupation and training cannot completely replace it. For this reason, employers are usually interested in experienced candidates with management and supervisory skills.

The level of employment in this occupation depends on factors affecting food services, which are sensitive to economic conditions. On the one hand, the business environment is highly competitive and profit margins are low, resulting in particularly high business turnover. On the other hand, despite increases in household income and discretionary spending, amounts spent on restaurant meals have not really increased. The food service industry is also facing competition from companies delivering meal kits and from retail businesses diversifying their service offerings by opening fast food or ready-to-eat outlets. In the short term, employment prospects will depend on the pace of easing restaurant restrictions and the recovery of the tourism industry. In addition, the widespread practice of working from home during the pandemic has significantly reduced food service expenditures. Continued telework could cause restaurants to lose a large part of their customer base and could affect the growth of the occupation.
