The Buzz about Starting a Business in Oregon
5 must-ask questions about owning your own business.
Let’s get right to it; now is the perfect time to start your own business in Oregon. With a productive workforce and an atmosphere of collaboration among local businesses, the Portland and Eugene-Salem markets are buzzing with new business opportunities.
Here’s five important questions to ask that will guide you to the right business opportunity:
- What are you passionate about?
- What new industries have you not considered?
- What opportunity provides long-term success?
- What business offers unlimited earning potential?
- What type of training and support will you get?
These are great questions to help you find the right business opportunity. Take the commercial cleaning or janitorial industry for example. Managing janitorial services offers recurring revenue because customers need their businesses cleaned day after day, month after month. A typical cleaning contract with a customer lasts for three years and many for much longer based on the service provided.
In Eugene-Salem, one local franchise company, Jani-King, offers low investment plans, training and have established contracts throughout the area with customers such as the University of Oregon. This summer, Jani-King also partnered with TrackTownUSA to clean the entire event. Throughout Eugene-Salem and Portland, Jani-King is a respected partner for many businesses including hospitals, hotels, offices, restaurants, and more.
Having a big brand franchise company behind you that offers expert training, equipment programs and has a reputation in the industry for being the best will not only help you succeed in the future, it will help answer your questions before you even get started. Before you get started, just make sure to ask the right questions, consider partnering with a respected brand and know that Oregon is a great place for doing business.
