A new ranking from Forbes put the Provo and Salt Lake City metropolitan areas among the best-positioned regions in the country to recover from the pandemic.
The authors listed the top 10 and bottom 10 cities alphabetically — not in a ranked order.
In addition to Provo and Salt Lake City, other cities in the top ten were:
- Boise, Idaho
- Denver, Colorado
- Durham, North Carolina
- Madison, Wisconsin
- Raleigh, North Carolina
- San Jose, California
- Tucson, Arizona
- Washington, D.C.

“That’s kind of our secret sauce is we’ve got a really good workforce,” Spendlove said. “We’ve got great employers and we’ve got good conditions for success.”
