Middletown ranks the highest in the Butler-Warren counties area on a list of the best small-sized cities to start a business in the United States, according to a study by WalletHub.
|Overall Rank||City||Total Score||Business Environment Rank||Access to Resources Rank||Business Costs Rank|
Middletown ranked 330th, just higher than Fairfield (394), which was above Mason (556) and Hamilton (743) in rank out of 1,268 small-sized cities in the business-friendly study.
To find the best small cities in which to start a business, WalletHub’s analysts compared 1,268 cities across three key dimensions: Business Environment, Access to Resources and Business Costs. All the cities ranked have a population below 100,000.
The study said city size matters when choosing a launching pad for a startup. Depending on an entrepreneur’s type of business and personal preferences, a city with a smaller population can be a better option, the study found.
Also ranked on the list were Huber Heights (572), Troy (589), Kettering (830), Riverside (939), Xenia (970), Beavercreek (1,054) and Fairborn (1,058).
We’re working hard at being more business friendly and we’ll gladly take the positive press while we continue to make Middletown’s future brighter.
