Virginia is the Best for Business


 According to, our state has been ranked the best state in America for business.  Using six categories – business costs, labor supply, regulatory environment, economic climate, growth prospects, and quality of life – Forbes defines which states have the most ideal environment for business growth and success.  Out of these six areas, Virginia ranked in the top five for four of them.  

Governor Bob McDonnell said in an earlier statement, “Virginia is the best state in America for business.  Our desirable business climate continues to be recognized by prestigious, independent third parties like, and we are thrilled to regain the No. 1 spot as Best State for Business.”  We agree, being recognized by an organization as big as Forbes is a huge honor!

Since the creation of the study eight years ago, our state has alternated between first and second place, but this year we have once again reclaimed our standing as the best. Virginia’s gross state product is $446 billion, with a five-year annual growth of 1.0 percent.  With statistics as impressive as these, it’s clear to see why there’s no better place to start or move a business.

One Loudoun is nestled in Northern Virginia and has already been established as a front-runner for dining, entertainment, shopping, and quality living. We have thousands of square footage of office space and plenty of room for new retail.  Any type of business could benefit from calling our community their home.   
Just like every state in the country, Virginia still has hurdles to overcome, but we’re lucky to hold the status we do.  Virginia recovered amazingly from the recent economic crisis, further proving the strengths of our state.
