There aren't too many small or privately owned food businesses in Sanford, but there are many chains and somewhat popular food establishments all through town.

In the past few years, there has been a big boom in new retail stores and restaurants. This "Boom" has increased the economic traffic in Sanford and provided many new jobs. I am very happy with the new construction and am always excited to see what new building has been built when I go home.
While there are a lot of new management and simple sales associate jobs, there aren't too many new BIG companies… which puts people with higher degrees at a disadvantage.
