Florida is No. 2 State for Business

Northwest Florida

The Sunshine State held on to its No. 2 ranking in the 2023 Chief Executive Best and Worst States for Business survey of chiefs. The state’s low taxes and strong stance against pandemic-motivated business shutdowns boosted Florida’s popularity among business owners, helping kick off a stronger stream of migration to the state from relatively locked-down places including New York.

And, among the chiefs surveyed for the 2023 rankings, Florida actually picked up a bit of ground versus No. 1 Texas.
