Football Business Kicks Off

Football BarMEDFORD, Ore. — If the start of football season has your foam finger wagging, you’re not alone.

Local businesses are also cheering for the official start of football season. Both NFL games, and college football, pull fans into local bars and restaurants.

Staff at Joe’s Sports Bar say they see a dramatic increase once the fall sporting season starts, meaning more food is served, more drinks are poured and employees make more money.

Joe’s Sports Bar says NFL wins out over college games, unless it’s the Oregon Ducks, which brings in the biggest and loudest crowd.
