All Up In Your Business Podcast: Trends in economic development and retail markets

By Colin Killian, Public Communications Director

Since longtime host Jay Socol retired last spring, it’s been a while since our last episode of All Up in Your Business. Due to popular demand, the podcast returns, but with a slightly different look.

College Station Chief Development Officer Natalie Ruiz now co-hosts the program with Economic Development Manager Brian Piscacek to update us on business trends and the restaurants, retailers, industries, and events that might be coming to town. We’ll produce a fresh podcast addressing various topics on a quarterly basis.

In this discussion with Aaron Farmer of The Retail Coach, Natalie and Brian break down the evolution of local, regional, and national retail markets, along with the recent Economic Outlook Conference. They also address the challenges presented by continued inflation, supply chain issues, and staffing shortages.

Aaron and Brian were rolling, so the episode ran longer than usual, but we think you’ll find their discussion insightful and well worth your time. 

All Up In Your Business is available via Podbean, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and YouTube. Please subscribe, rate, and recommend!Please subscribe, rate and recommend!
