Texas is Business-Friendly and Gainesville is “Totally Texas”

Texas invests in a business-friendly climate that includes a highly-skilled workforce, easy access to global markets, predictable regulations, and has no corporate or personal income tax. For the 17th consecutive year, Texas was named the nation’s “Best State for Business.”  Texas was also awarded Site Selection’s Governor’s Cup, for the 9th consecutive year, and when you compare Texas’ economy, as if it were a country, to the nations of the rest of the world, it would rank 9th largest
