Known as a city within a park, Macon, with a population of about 100,000, is small, but with a healthy appetite for good food. When it comes to eating in Macon, you will find plenty of options no matter what type of food you crave, though inexpensive eats reign here. Farm to table food is big here, as is seafood, burgers and barbeque from locally owned places, and fast food chains. Yes, salaries are less in Macon, compared with other Georgia cities. With projected growth of 6% for all food workers, including fast food, there is stability in Macon but less potential for expansive job growth. Average salaries in the culinary field run about $21,000, and whereas that’s not much, it’s good for Macon standards and there is much less competition here, meaning start ups have a better chance of succeeding.
