Cafeteria managers ensure compliance with health and safety standards and plan and provide nutritious meals. They might work in cafeterias for schools, hospitals or corporate offices or as part of chain restaurants. A high school diploma or GED is the minimum education needed for this job, though candidates wanting to earn a postsecondary certificate or degree can find relevant programs in food service management; some jobs in corporate cafeterias may require postsecondary education. On-the-job training is common for new hires. Experienced cafeteria managers can pursue voluntary certification from the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation.
