Here are Experimac’s Top Five Target Markets:

Portland, Oregon

Ranked #1 on the Forbes list is Portland, Oregon. With high growth in both jobs and population, Portland is one of the cities that Experimac is most interested in targeting. The population of nearly 2.4 million lends itself to several growing industries, namely high tech fields and green innovation.

Seattle, Washington

Ranked #3 on the Forbes list, Seattle has the two main things a business owner needs: a strong economy and an amazing network of business resources. Seattle’s economy is ranked among the best with high college attainment, low unemployment, and a job growth rate of 3 percent — which is nearly one full percent higher than the national average. One of the greatest success factors for opening a franchise in Seattle is the city’s abundance of resources available to you via the Washington Business Development Center (BDC), which can help franchise owners with tasks such as finding sources of funding, bookkeeping and taxes, marketing strategies, and much more. As a Seattle Experimac franchise owner, you will enjoy all the benefits of an established and secure corporate network without sacrificing the independence of being your own boss.

Denver, Colorado

Denver, which ranks #4 on the Forbes list, is one of the top economies in the entire nation, experiencing sustainable economic growth that is set to continue for years to come. In addition, Denver and the state of Colorado have a plethora of resources provided by the Denver Metro Area Small Business Development Center (SBDC) that franchise owners can utilize to maximize their business’ potential. Denver possesses the optimal combination of low unemployment, high job growth, and low cost of doing business, leading to their high rank on the Forbes list. With the guidance of the SBDC and Experimac’s world-class franchise support, there’s no way your Denver Experimac franchise can fail.

Charlotte, North Carolina

Charlotte, which comes in at #7 on the Forbes list, boasts a thriving economy and a vast business support network, both of which will be great assets to your Charlotte franchise. Charlotte’s economy has been ranked as one of the strongest in the nation. One of the biggest economic strengths in Charlotte is the city’s high rate of job growth. In fact, the job growth rate is among the top 25 in the nation according to Forbes. The city of Charlotte has resources available for business and franchise owners via Charlotte Business Resources, a faction of the city’s government that offers checklists for getting your business started, and training classes that will guide you to maximize your business, thereby thriving and growing more quickly in this well-established economy.

Columbus, Ohio
