August 21, 2018
A survey citing the top 10 businesses to start in 2018 ranks landscaping services as No. 1 and a roofing company as No. 4 with residential renovation as No. 7.
The study by Fit Small Business—a U.S. business publication—based the criteria on key factors such as profit potential, availability of capital, financial growth, competition, access to talent, and minimum required education.
“There are a lot of opportunities for entrepreneurs to start businesses that don't require millions in start-up cash or advanced degrees, but that still have high profit potential," said Eric Noe of Fit Small Business.
According to Fit Small Business, these are the top 10 best potential start-up sectors for this year:
1) Landscaping service

4) Roofing company
5) Courier, messenger and local delivery service
