As the final quarter of the year rapidly approaches, businesses in nearly every industry are preparing for the busiest season of the year. From Halloween to New Year’s, in cities and towns across the country, Americans venture out in greater numbers to prepare for the holidays, visit family, dine out, celebrate and travel.
