The hospitality industry is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. Registered Apprenticeship programs are helping to help ensure that the skilled workers this industry needs are available to maintain that trend.

Food service and other hospitality jobs are often the first jobs young people hold, and for some, it can be the first step towards a life-long career. Hospitality-based businesses need a way to identify the skills in their entry-level workers that will take them to the next level in their careers. Apprenticeship programs help make that possible, ensuring that employers have the right employees with the diverse talents needed to succeed in this industry.
