Starting a Business?
Forbes named Ohio the 9th best state to start a business. On top of that, six Ohio metros were named among the top 30 most affordable large metropolitans. Preble County is advantageously located between three of them: Dayton (#8), Cincinnati (#22), and Columbus (#27). And because Preble County is 40 minutes outside of Dayton and 90 minutes outside of Cincinnati and Columbus, it’s even more affordable than the most affordable metros. Entrepreneurs can find a multitude of cost benefits here.
