It's always nice to be apart of a growing economy, I first moved here almost 12 years ago and SLC has been on the constant rise ever since. Forbes.com just released their list of the top 20 fastest growing cities in the U.S Salt Lake came in at number 5 on the list with some pretty intersting stats.
2012 Population growth rate: 1.5%
2013 Population growth rate: 1.5%
Job growth rate: 2.8%
Gross Metro Product: 5.3%
Median salary: $60,000
3 Texas cities Austin, Houston, and Dallas took the top 3 slots respectively with Raleigh, NC coming in at number 4 on the list. Also, got to give a honorable mention to Provo finishing in the top 10 at #7 and Ogden at #20 on the list.
Guess that's why were finally getting a Popeye's chicken and Dunkin Donuts huh...lol. Either way, way to go SLC!
