Menu for Success!
The Hotel/Restaurant Management program at Spokane Community College prepares students for entry-level management
positions in the hospitality industry. Our six-quarter program leads to an Associate in Applied Science degree (A.A.S.)
that opens doors to management careers on cruise ships, in casinos, at elegant restaurants, at ski resorts, and at cozy
bed-and-breakfast hotels. If you like fun, meeting people, and the challenges of management, you can live and work
where others travel for vacation.
Business is booming worldwide
The hotel and restaurant industry grows and changes constantly, making it one of the most exciting businesses
worldwide. The industry currently enjoys a surge in tourism, a creative array of specialty restaurants, and rapid
expansion in convention business.
Do you have what it takes?
Are you organized and efficient even when working under pressure and juggling a variety of tasks? Do you enjoy
learning new things? Are you physically fit for an active job and open to working odd or long hours? Would you
enjoy working as part of a team that serves the public? Add to these qualities a pleasant personality and a
healthy dose of common sense, and you are the perfect candidate for a career in hotel and restaurant management.
Practice makes perfect
Most of our program's students also work part time for hands-on experience at local hotels and restaurants.
Spokane's variety of hospitality venues offers a wide assortment of cuisine and levels of service, and the
city is nationally recognized for its convention facilities. Many of our graduates advance to full-time
supervisory or management positions. Available part-time positions include:
- Front-desk operations
- Food and beverage service
- Sales and marketing
- Night auditing
