Food Service Industry Grows In Latin Markets
Major growth is quietly taking place inside the food service industry within the largest US Latin cities. Latino’s are now the largest minority group in the United States and is growing. Cities such as Miami-L.A.-New York-San Antonio-Chicago-Dallas and others are continuing to grow at rapid pace. Whether through legal means or not it is obvious the Latin population will continue to increase in the United States during the near future.

It’s no secret Latinos enjoy and require most meals be served with rice and beans for lunch or dinner. Every day roughly 14% of the entire US consumes dry edible beans alone, not including rice; and the average American consumes about 25 lb. of rice per year (4 lb. comes from drinking beer).Food Service Rice Stats As more and more people migrate from Latin America bean and rice consumption should continue to grow as well.
