I just moved my online retail operation to the town where my parents live in far northern California, about 1.5 hours south of the Oregon border. It's great being able to be around them, but the area is notorious for very slow moving people. When I was in Santa Barbara, California, USPS Priority Mail almost always reached my customers within 1-2 days. It was awesome. Up here, it takes 3-5. Kind of a drag. I'm thinking I'll move the operation somewhere more suited for it as soon as I outgrow the warehouse I'm in, probably within 1-3 years. I do still want to live where I am now to be around my folks, so I'd like the business's new location to be a direct flight away. Los Angeles, Portland, Reno, and Salt Lake City all fit the bill in that way. Salt Lake City sounds especially enticing because it's the furthest east and most of my suppliers are in Ohio or on the east coast, plus it seems like a major hub. How is Utah for business laws and taxes?
I'm open to any and all suggestions.
