Cedar Park and Round Rock Named Best Cities to Open a Restaurant

Best cities to start a restaurant in 2015

1. Cedar Park, Texas

The Greater Austin area is one of the fastest-growing metropolitan regions in the country, and Cedar Park, a major suburb, is reaping the rewards. The number of restaurants in Cedar Park doubled over five years, partly in response to a surge in new residents. Recent restaurant additions include In-N-Out Burger and Sushi Fever, which both opened in 2014. City officials don’t expect Cedar Park’s population growth to slow soon, so demand for new dining options should remain strong.

5. Round Rock, Texas

Round Rock is one of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. and is part of one of the fastest-growing metropolitan areas, to boot. The city’s rapid and continuing growth makes the market ripe for new restaurants. Round Rock residents welcome new eateries on a regular basis, including staples from nearby Austin such as Kerbey Lane Cafe, which expanded to Round Rock in May.
