Get Your Business Started in One of America’s Fastest Growing Cities

Posted on September 14, 2012


There are a lot of factors that affect your choice of a new business site.  But among the top things that businesses look for is growth.  A growing population means a growing market for your products and services.  Today, MarketMAPS takes a look at some of the fastest growing cities in America.  If you’re looking for a new city in which to open your business, consider one of these fast growing locations. 

  Charlotte, North Carolina

North Carolina’s largest city is growing fast.  Charlotte has approximately 1.8 million residents, but is expected to reach about 3 million within the next 30 years, according to researchers.  Along with being one of the US’s major financial hubs, Charlotte is also home to a major NFL team, an NBA team, the NASCAR hall of fame, and one of the largest amusements parks in the country.

Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, Texas

Everything is bigger in Texas.  This large metropolitan area has an estimated population of about 6.6 million.  In 30 years, it is expected to be home to about 11 million people.  Dallas and its surrounding suburbs have one of the highest concentrations of corporate headquarters in the US.  The Metroplex also contains the largest information technology base in the state.

Salt Lake City, Utah

With just over 1 million residents, by 2042 Salt Lake City is expected to grow to just short of 2 million people.  While in the past Salt Lake City’s economy was based on mining and steel mills, today it is a service-based city.   Salt Lake City is known as the “Crossroads of the West” for its central geography in the Western US.

Austin-Round Rock-San Marcos, Texas

This metropolitan area is expected to nearly double in size by 2042—from 1.8 million to 3.5 million.  The area has a diverse economy heavily anchored by government activities and education.  The Metroplex’s largest employers are located mainly inside the city of Austin, which is the 13th most populous city in the US.
