Some Takeaways 15 A range of factors affect the food supply chain, and thus food businesses, from global climate change to local zoning. Food services, by far the largest and fastest growing food sector in New York City, is concentrated in Manhattan. Food retail employment is somewhat more proportionate to population by borough. Brooklyn and Queens lead the pack with the most manufacturing jobs, 5,000 and 4,500 respectively. Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx have the most wholesale trade employment. Food retail and wholesale employment has grown over the decade. Employment in food manufacturing, while small, has remained stable over the past decade. Real wages have decreased over the decade, most substantially in manufacturing. Because of the industry mix in New York City, most jobs do not require a college degree. Hotels and full-service restaurants have the most online job ad volume – likely because many smaller, fast-food establishments do not advertise on line.
