The food service industry is one of the largest industries in the United States.

Statistics by the U.S Bureau of Labor state that food preparation and serving related sectors combined to be the third largest employer by occupational groups in metropolitan and nonmetropolitan areas.

It is indicated that 2011 could be an excellent year for the restaurant industry.  Sales are expected to climb up to a four year high, according to industry analysts.  A recently released report by research firm Technomic predicts that the total U.S food service sales will overshadow 2010 by an increase of 1.7% in sales on a nominal basis and dipping just 0.3% on a real basis, which takes inflation into menu price consideration.  And if this forecast is realized, it would be some of the highest growth since 2008.

Manhattan Office Space Flooding the Market


These days, developers and commercial real estate brokers have a tough time filling office space in Manhattan in New York City.  Following a building boom in which developers flooded the market with office space in newly constructed towers, tenants are hard to come by.  According to the NY Times, many tenants who signed deals in 2007 are seeking to abandon their prime office space.  Part of the problem is that the hedge funds have become defunct, leaving the prime real estate locations in the city.  While only 20 Million square feet have been built in this decade according to CB Richard Ellis, supply is finally catching up with demand.

By Dmitry Shimanov, General Director of MAR Consult Research Agency
Also accessible on SIS Worldwide Intelligence A famous economic law says: “Demand determines supply”. Is this really true?
