Culinary and Hospitality Pathway

The culinary arts, hospitality, and travel industries can be fast-paced and exciting, but they can also be competitive and demanding. Formal training through LCCC’s Culinary & Hospitality Program can set you apart from the competition by enhancing your marketable skills.

Hospitality and tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, and the Cleveland area’s food scene is gaining national recognition. This translates into great job opportunities, but it also means that getting hired can be challenging. That’s why the customer service, creative thinking, self-confidence under pressure, and marketing skills you’ll learn in LCCC’s program are so important.

Along with these essential soft skills, the LCCC Culinary & Hospitality Pathway includes coursework that combines hands-on training with real-world internship and practicum opportunities.
