I always thought that fire code dictates that doors open out for businesses so those inside don't get trapped inside if there is a sudden stampeed to the exits, to prevent a situation whereby everyone is trying to get out at once and they are crushing those nearest the doors into doors that open in, but can't be opened due to the cruch to get out.
