Food retailing is one of the largest and most impactful industries in the U.S. economy.
This is a large industry that exhibits steady demand. Food retailing sales are projected to exceed $1.2 trillion (~3.3 billion per day) in 2014 and represent 7% of the U.S. gross domestic product. Restaurant and grocery sales are expected to exceed $570 billion and $660 billion in 2014, respectively.
This is a growing industry. 2015 sales are projected to increase approximately 4% over 2014, while the leading restaurants and specialty food retailers grow even faster.
