LendEDU has recognized the 100 towns and cities in the Lone Star State that have become the very best for starting small business.

​Small businesses need a strong daytime population, customers with good incomes, and a low cost of operation to open and thrive.

Those factors make certain parts of Texas better than others for getting a company off the ground, according to a report by LendEDU​.

To compile the ranking, the authors evaluated the cities on three main metrics and their components:

Population (20 percent)

  • The difference between the normal population and the population present during standard working hours​; and, 
  • The forecasted population growth over the next five years.

Income (40 percent)

  • Residents’ average disposable income; and, 
  • The forecasted income growth over the next five years.

Expenses (40 percent)​

  • Property tax rates;
  • Sales tax rates;
  • Average cost for utilities;
  • Rate of burglaries as compared to the national average; and, 
  • Rate of property crimes as compared to the national average.​
