Aspiring to be a chef? Well, you have made a great decision because hospitality industry in Australia is booming and there is a requirement of myriad of chefs to cater the needs of emerging restaurants, cafes and hotels.
Jenny from Chef Wears says that the hotel industry is growing in Australia mainly in Brisbane where we have recently seen lot of new hotels such as like Emporium, W hotel, Novotel and more. In recent commonwealth Games organised in nearby Gold Coast, hundreds of media personnels and business men and professionals came to Brisbane. During this time there was a huge demand of 5 or 7 star hotels and it was clearly evident that we just didn’t have enough to cater all of them. We need more 5 star hotels and currently we do not have enough 5 star accomodation to cater such events. Hence, there is a boom in hotels now and new hotels coming soon.
