A recent report ranks St. Joseph 17th as one of “The Best Small Cities to Start a Small Business.”

“I think to be ranked in the top 20 across the U.S. for places to start small businesses is an incredible attribute for St. Joseph,” said Natalie Redmond, vice president of membership for the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce, of the report conducted by Go.Verizon.com. “If you looked at some of the comments from the folks who did the ranking, they said things like, ‘These cities in the top 20 should be an inspiration for other cities across the country on how to make an environment conducive for small businesses.’”
