Pacific states: small business by the numbers

Ah, Pacific time: rising later than the rest and enjoying a laid-back lifestyle.

Well, that’s not entirely accurate for small business owners who are working hard no matter when the sun comes up. We wanted to know a little more about small businesses in the Pacific region (Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon, Nevada, and Washington) so we aggregated some data from our own research and the U.S. Small Business Administration. Enjoy our slideshow below and learn a little more about the small business footprint on the nation’s western front.
