What is a restaurant owner to do when there aren’t enough cooks in the kitchen (and haven’t been for years)?
The Maine Department of Labor (DOL) and trade group HospitalityMaine think they have the answer, or at least part of it: apprenticeships.
Apprentices are required to be enrolled in coursework related to their job in hospitality, such as culinary arts or tourism management. Certain classes will count toward the apprenticeship certificate.
