Luckily, the number of culinary schools in Montana does not equate to a small number of cafes, eateries, delis, restaurants, hotels, and resorts that are in constant need of culinary professionals. The local tourist industry is sustained by two world-renown destinations, which are Yellowstone National Park and Glacier National Park. The state’s major city centers of Missoula, Billings, and Great Falls also have their share of dining establishments, schools, and catering needs. Salaries in the Montana’s culinary arts sector vary depending on job function and level of responsibility. The average salary for a restaurant manager and chef ranges around $44,000, while a bartender makes an average of $70,000, and a caterer makes about $35,000.
