Are caterers in demand?

While catering firms are in demand to handle wedding receptions, parties, banquets, corporate functions, movie set food services, and other events, significant employment and earning opportunities in the field are largely for caterers who manage their own businesses. Most of the job growth in this sector occurs as employees of these operations move to other careers or retire.
