By Staff Writer August 08, 2019

Thumbtack announced the results of its 2019 Small Business Friendliness Survey, ranking the best or worst cities and states in the country based on factors including licensing requirements, tax regulations, and labor and hiring regulations. This is the largest continuous study of small business perceptions of local government policy in the U.S.

Two Texas cities – Austin and Fort Worth – led the city rankings.

Thumbtack surveyed more than 5,000 local small business owners in 49 states and 44 cities to evaluate how well state and local governments support entrepreneurs in starting, operating, and growing a small business.

Overwhelmingly, 76 percent of small business owners feel there is enough economic opportunity in their community for their business to succeed. Of the nearly quarter of small business owners who feel there is not enough opportunity – 42 percent live in suburban communities, 31 percent live in rural communities, and 26 percent in urban communities.
