Likely, Seattle’s low unemployment rate of 4.4% and high job growth rate of 3% were factors in Forbes’ ranking. Indeed, these two things come together to indicate that the residents of the city are well-employed, even the 6,000 new residents that move there each year.
Seattle is also one of the most educated cities in the nation, with a 43.4% college attainment rate. The several colleges and universities in the area, including University of Washington, surely have something to do with this. Seattle was ranked by Forbes as the thirteenth most educated city in the country.
Your Seattle franchise will benefit from these favorable economic conditions as you are starting out and throughout time. Indeed, this strong economy creates a great foundation that your business can grow on when you are ready to expand.
Resources for Business Owners
Small businesses are the backbone of the economy, which is why Washington makes a huge effort to provide resources and assistance to the owners of businesses and franchises in Seattle. The Washington Small Business Development Center, or SBDC, provides a myriad of resources for business owners.
Chief among these resources is the low- or no-cost advising from one of the experienced and professional business counselors at the SBDC. As the owner of a Seattle franchise, you will enjoy the individualized attention and advice for your business.
Since 1980, the advisors at the SBDC have been helping business owners with the following:

- Understanding bookkeeping and taxes
- Managing human resources
- Creating marketing strategies
- As a franchise owner, utilizing the assistance from the SBDC is a great way to maximize your business and jumpstart its growth.
