Chefs are employed in a wide variety of hospitality establishments including hotels, motels, restaurants, clubs, cafés, cafeterias, hospitals, flight catering centres, seagoing vessels and food processing factories. Chefs with sufficient start-up money may even become restaurant owners. The majority of chefs work in capital cities and in large country centres, particularly in areas where there are tourist resorts.
Expanded tourism has increased demand for highly skilled chefs, particularly in establishments of international standard. In large kitchens, chefs usually progress from commis chef to chef de partie, to sous chef, to chef de cuisine, to executive chef or food manager.
