Good news for the restuarant industry in 2015. According to the National Restaurant Association, sales in for United States restaurants are expected to grow 3.8% this year. The industry is expected to hit $709 Billion from last year's $683 Billion.
The NRA cites a few challenges facing the industry as well. The improving labor scenario in the U.S. is making it more challenging to recruit and retain employees. Additionally, the Affordable Care Act has made it more expensive to provide benefits for employees.
