Competition for bartending and mixology jobs is already fierce, but it could also increase further in the near future. Besides the continual need for trained professionals in the local New Orleans bar scene, the Bureau of Labor Statistics projects 7% overall employment growth in full-service restaurants until 2026. With new candidates eagerly seeking these opportunities, there’s never been a better time to invest in a bartending school franchise in New Orleans.

Beyond the Bar Scene: Growing Employment Opportunities

According to the National Restaurant Association, Louisiana’s 9,533 eating and drinking place locations generated an estimated $10.3 billion in sales during 2018. That figure is expected to increase thanks to bigger populations, favorable operating costs and easy access to fresh local ingredients. Continued potential growth in corporate bars, special events and the hospitality industry may lead to greater staffing needs in the near future.
