Food Manager Jobs

Looking for a job that doesn’t require an advanced degree, and pays better than the national average for all occupations? You might consider becoming a food service manager.

According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual income for food service managers was just above $52,000 with the top 10 % pulling in more than $90k per year as of May 2017. The median annual wage for all occupations was $37,690.

Food managers are multi-taskers by nature, juggling tasks as varied as preparing employee schedules, overseeing food preparation, guest relations, hiring and firing, payroll, training, and maintaining the physical plant. If you enjoy a fast-paced environment where no two days are the same, food service management might just be for you.

Most employers require at least a high school diploma and a few years related work experience in the food service industry. Upscale establishments typically prefer additional training from a community college, technical or vocational school, culinary school, or 4-year college. In most cases there is no certification or licensure required by law to work as a food service manager but many state and local jurisdictions, as well as many employers, require food managers to complete a certification course, such as the state-specific Online Food Manager Certification course offered by EduClasses at


The EduClasses® online training service offers a family of online courseware to meet your certification & training needs.
