Montana Franchise Opportunities

If you long for the great outdoors and want to live in a lot of space without a lot of people, consider moving to Montana, where some of the most beautiful natural spaces are national parks, and there won’t be much to block your view of the mountains.

Life in Montana

With only about a million people spaced out across the fourth largest state in the country, you’ll have plenty of room to roam in Montana. There are a three cities with populations over 50,000 (Billings, Missoula and Great Falls), as well as five micropolitan areas (Bozeman, Butte, Helena and Kalispell) that make up the “big 7” cities in Montana.

Though the population is almost 90 percent white, there is also the largest concentration of Native Americans in the country.

Montana is known for its supreme recreation, and is also the least obese state in the nation. Consider opening a health food (link) or sports (link) franchise to cater to the fit population.

Economy Drivers

Montana has a GDP of $46 billion dollars, which is one of the lowest in the nation, but it also has one of the smallest populations. Major industries in the state include natural resources (lumber, minerals, gold, silver, coal and talc) and tourism, as Montana is home to Glacier National Park and entrances to Yellowstone National Park.

Taxes and Business

  • Montana has a corporate license tax that is a flat rate of 6.75 percent, but the state does not have a franchise tax.
  • The personal income tax ranges from 1 to 6.9 percent.
  • There are 11,214 small businesses in Montana, which make up 97.5 percent of the state’s employers.
Texas Franchise Opportunities

Everything may be bigger in Texas, but it ranks second in many things: population, size of the state and GDP. Still, that’s enough to make it one of the biggest, most productive states out there, with enough barbecue, chili and cowboys for all.

New Hampshire Franchise Opportunities

Are you a pioneering person who wants to pay less (or no!) taxes, and abide by the state motto of “Live free or die”? Do you want to hike in the summer and ski in the winter? If you value freedom and the great outdoors, New Hampshire could be a fantastic location for your next franchise.

Wyoming Franchise Opportunities

Although Wyoming has the smallest population and almost the lowest population density, the federal government owns nearly half the land in the state because it’s filled with such magical displays of nature. Yellowstone, Grand Teton National Park, Devils Tower and many more could all be in your backyard if you decide to start your next franchise in Wyoming!
