Oklahoma Cities Named Among Best to Start a Business

WalletHub recently released its annual lists of the best large and small cities to start a business. Several Oklahoma cities made the lists.

After reviewing the top 150 cities in the U.S. and various metrics including financing, growth rates, business environment/affordability and more, WalletHub ranked Oklahoma City #1 as the best place to start a business. Tulsa, Okla., the state’s second largest metropolitan area, came in at #4.

When it comes to small cities (those with populations between 25,000 and 100,000), Oklahoma had multiple communities rank well, with Enid, Okla., coming in at #7. WalletHub’s analysts compared 1,261 cities across three key dimensions: 1) Business Environment, 2) Access to Resources and 3) Business Costs. Other Oklahoma cities coming in the top 100 include Ponca City (#51), Moore (#68), Shawnee (#82) and Edmond (#91).
