Top 20 U.S. Cities To Do Business In



16. San Antonio, Texas

Yet another city found in Texas to grace our list, coming in at numer 16 is San Antonio, thanks in part to its white-hot job market growth. Its economy is projected to grow 4% this year and that, coupled with its proximity to other top ranking cities makes San Antonio a great place to set up shop.

15. Houston, Texas

Thanks to its proximity as a port on the Gulf Coast, as well as its ties to the oil industry, coming in at number 15 on our list is Houston, Texas. Houston itself is the nation’s fourth biggest economy, and given the continued growth of the U.S. oil and gas industry, Houston is a safe benefit for continued growth in years to come.

14. Atlanta, Georgia

While Atlanta didn’t do so well economically during the Great Recession of 2008-2009, the outlook appears rosy going forward. Employment rates are expected to increase 3% per year for the next two years while the economy is expected to grow even more quickly. That, coupled with the city’s population of over 5.5 million makes Atlanta, Georgia a great place to do business or build a career.

13. Dallas, Texas

The “Big D”, Dallas Texas, comes in at number 13 on our list, with a population of over 4.5 million people and a projected economic growth rate this year of over 5%. Texas as a whole is on fire and as one of its most well-known and populous cities, Dallas is leading the pack.
