Fort Worth is at the top of a new survey rating the best cities for small businesses in the nation! Small-business owners gave Fort Worth an A+ ranking in Thumbtack’s annual survey of business friendliness among 57 cities across the U.S.

To determine the best cities for small businesses, more than 7,500 small-business owners were surveyed on categories including overall friendliness, ease of starting a business and hiring, licensing requirements, tax regulations and labor and hiring regulations. Only 6 cities in the nation received an A+, and Fort Worth also ranked higher than Dallas (C+) and Austin (B+).

“Small-business entrepreneurs are creating sustainable jobs, and policymakers must continue to empower this segment of the workforce,” said Lucas Puente, lead economist at Thumbtack. “It is critical for local, state and federal governments to support small-business owners as they adapt to rapid change and innovation in today’s economy.”

The fabulous local businesses that call Cowtown home are a huge part of what makes Fort Worth such a great place to live. Whether you’re searching for quintessential cowboy boots or enjoying local craft brews and eats, there’s no shortage of talented artisans, restauranteurs and craftsmen in our magnificent city.
