Denver Business Journal features Welcomemat’s list of America’s Top 25 Neighborhoods for Small Businesses in 2016
November 1, 2016.
Welcomemat was featured in Denver Business Journal for listing Washington Park the third-best neighborhood in the country for small business.
To compile the report, Welcomemat Services surveyed its franchisee members on livability factors in 500 ZIP code areas across the U.S.
Franchisees nominated neighborhoods in their community and answered survey questions based on information that included schools, local vibe, family friendliness, walkability, sense of community, etc. Other ranking data points included increase in movement throughout 2016, Welcomemat redemption levels, income levels of redeemers, age of redeemers. Livability scores from areavibes.com were also used in the calculation. These areas were chosen from the over 500 zip codes Welcomemat delivers to. If full data wasn’t available, averages were used in place. Seasonality was also taken into consideration for mover counts. In the case of a tie, lower income levels were given higher priority in the ranks.
