The Old Line State has been ranked number one in entrepreneurship by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.


Ranked #1 one in entrepreneurship by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Maryland is a great place to open a business.

Maryland’s public education system is also one of the top-ranked in the country, due to plenty of affordable colleges and universities being located there. This gives a new franchise access to a highly skilled workforce, which is important to any business’s ability to grow and expand. While Maryland does offer significant help to businesses in terms of guidance and advice, it’s the access to financial resources that really help businesses thrive and survive. Maryland’s geographic positioning is also a boon for new businesses, considering New York City, Washington D.C. and Philadelphia are all within driving distance, meaning businesses have a wider customer base than in many other states.
