A report from the National Restaurant Association (NRA) predicts that Arizona will lead the country in restaurant growth for 2015 and will continue this growth for the next ten years. Calculating factors such as industry employment numbers, disposable personal income and state population, the NRA predicts that Arizona will add up to 65,000 new food industry jobs.
For some, Arizona’s growth doesn’t come as a surprise. The state has an incredibly favorable environment for opening a restaurant, such as lower taxes and fewer labor restrictions, which makes starting a business relatively easy. Events such as the Super Bowl and MLB’s Spring Training have also helped to generate business for the state.
