A recently released report ranked the 50 best cities in the nation to open a restaurant.
Santa Clara was ranked 32nd. Kudos to the Mission City.
San Francisco was ranked 4th. No San Jose. No Palo Alto. Berkeley was the only other Bay Area city on the list and they ranked 38th.
The following factors were considered in the rankings:
- Annual restaurant sales per capita
- Competition and market saturation (restaurants per capita)
- Workforce (the number of restaurant industry workers per capita)
- Medium income in each city
We hope this ranking helps attract new restaurants to Santa Clara. We’ve got some good ones, but could use more, especially in the authentic Italian and breakfast categories.
Tomorrow, we’ll highlight a Mission City restaurant that some consider a “must try.”
You can guess if you want.
