Kansas City has been recognized as the top city in the nation for business growth, according to Wendover Corp.’s national business growth survey report. The report looks at key indicators of growth: business relocations, expansions into more space, and the opening of new locations.
“We were surprised at first, but as we dug deeper the Kansas City numbers made sense,” said Wendover CEO Larry Dillon. “We found large-scale expansions in health, legal services and real estate in Kansas City. We also spoke with the KCADC about changes in the business environment, and they referenced the introduction of Google Fiber and the Cisco Smart City Initiative as major drivers of development in the area over the past few years.”
Kansas City’s business growth index score increased 23.8 percent compared to the same period last year, outpacing all other major cities across the nation.
With its strategic location, globally connected infrastructure, competitive business and labor costs, highly-skilled and hard working talent, quality of life and a statewide commitment to attracting companies and investment, Missouri is a place where companies come to grow and thrive.
