Atlanta is the food capital of Georgia, if not the entire American South, and its influence is extending. This is evidenced by Atlanta's surging culinary job market, which is pretty impressive for a city of half a million people. The Georgia Labor Market Explorer (GLME) projects above-average employment growth for a number of different food professionals, which is good news for students attending cooking and culinary schools in Georgia. Both the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and GLME project long-term employment growth. Chefs and head cooks can expect to see an annual salary of $46,000 with a projected 17% growth rate through 2020. Restaurant cooks can pocket $22,000 but with an astounding expected 36% growth rate. Bakers and those in the pastry arts average $23,000 yearly and can anticipate 23% growth, while kitchen supervisors earn $29,000 and are looking at 30% growth through 2020.
