Pennsylvania is also home to many iconic American foods, such as Hershey’s chocolate, soft pretzels, and cheesesteak sandwiches.
The state’s diverse economy is driven by a variety of factors, including its strategic location between major cities in the Northeast, abundant natural resources, and well-developed transportation infrastructure. Major industries in Pennsylvania include healthcare, manufacturing, finance, and tourism.

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, small businesses in Pennsylvania employed nearly 2.5 million people and created over 46,000 new jobs in 2020.
