Some of the largest U.S. retailing companies like Office Depot, Stein Mart, and Public Supermarkets have located their corporate headquarters in cities throughout the state of Florida. The HQ-level managers and executives of some of the largest U.S. restaurant chains like Burger King, Checkers/Rally’s, and Darden Restaurants (Olive Garden, Seasons 52, Capital Grille, Yard House, Bahama Breeze, Longhorn Steakhouse, and Eddie V's) manage their national and global operations from Florida. In fact, there is a significant number of regional, national, and global restaurant chains with home offices in Florida, where new restaurant concepts find fertile testing grounds with hungry tourists. 

Opportunities for Job Seekers

In general, job hunters seeking their first retail management or home office job, as well as existing retail employees looking for retail career advancement, are likely to be successful when they look for those retail HQ management-level jobs in Florida. That’s because Florida is second only to California in the number and size of major U.S. retail industry companies that are headquartered there. In addition, some of the world’s most valuable retail brands and some of the newest and most innovative retail and restaurant chains are headquartered in there.

Retail job hunters will also like that Florida is one of 10 U.S. states that have no state income tax. 

Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami are all Florida cities that regional, national, and global retailing and restaurant companies call home. Not coincidentally, Florida is also a state in which a large number of famous founders of some of the oldest U.S. retail chains were living when they opened up their first brick-and-mortar retail stores.

The retail career path still allows retail employees to climb the retail corporate ladder from an entry-level retail store job to a retail management position. But these days, most retail headquarters jobs require specific retail education and experience, and most upper-level retail executives today start their retail careers in headquarters positions, not as a retail store cashier
