Texas business men and women, it’s time for celebration! Once again Texas received an A+ for showing off its southern hospitality as being the best place for small businesses. If you own or work for a small business, Texas is the right place for you. A recent article by Culture Map Dallas explains.
"Small businesses rated Texas No. 1 in the country for the friendliness of its zoning laws and the friendliness of its health and safety regulations," the survey reads. Researchers praised every aspect of small-business life in Texas, and none of the 11 categories received less than an "A" grade at the state level.
City-wise, Houston earned the highest ranking in the Lone Star State at No. 3; Austin nabbed the No. 4 slot, followed by Dallas (No. 6), Fort Worth (No. 7) and San Antonio (No. 8).
Dallas improved its score from 2013, earning an A+ ranking in five categories including overall friendliness and ease of starting a business. The only area where Dallas didn't excel was training and networking programs, for which Big D was given a C.
