Nebraska Franchise Opportunities

If you like the idea of small town living, and want a close-knit community you can bring a new franchise to, Nebraska might suit you just fine.

Little Cities, Big Opportunities

Almost 90 percent of the cities in Nebraska have fewer than 3,000 people living in them, with many towns clocking in at fewer than 1,000 people. The two largest cities in Nebraska are Omaha, with about 434,000 people, and the state capital Lincoln, which has about 268,000 residents. There are definite benefits to locating your franchise business in one of the small towns, so long as there's sufficient foot traffic where you open (and most retail franchises will have in-house experts or consultants to help with site selection).

Agriculture Awareness

The main industry in Nebraska is agriculture. The state is a major producer of corn, soybeans, sorghum, beef and pork.

Other economic drivers include transportation, telecommunications, insurance and manufacturing.

Let’s Talk Taxes
