Restaurants are expected to add 508,000 jobs this summer season, according to National Restaurant Association projections released today. The projected 2014 gain would represent the second consecutive year in which restaurants add at least 500,000 jobs during the summer season.

"Summer is the busiest season for restaurants in most parts of the country, and the uptick in business creates additional job opportunities at all levels of a restaurant operation," said Bruce Grindy, chief economist for the Association. "In many states with tourism-driven economies, restaurants are prime destinations for both tourists and job-seekers."

The restaurant industry is usually the nation's second-largest creator of summer jobs, ranking only the construction industry.
