PHOENIX — Starting a business from scratch can be a burdensome task. Strategic decisions, such as picking a location, can be your most important and challenging choice.
A NerdWallet study ranked cities based on each city’s business climate and Tolleson took the top spot.
The deciding factor was the average revenue per business, with Tolleson the highest with over $18 million — $17 million higher than the nearest city.
Another key takeaway was some of the top-ranked cities seemed to come from smaller locations, such as Tolleson and Wickenburg, both with populations under 7,000.
