A national business publication says Oklahoma City is the best city in America to start a business.

“Kiplinger” made that announcement last month.

Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce President Roy Williams said he's not surprised. He said business start-ups are gravitating to Oklahoma City because the city makes it easy for them to do business.

“We are becoming a younger and younger population city,” he said. “As a result there's more acceptance in the marketplace of new ideas.”

Williams said the fastest-growing strongest industry right now in Oklahoma is the Hospitality Industry. He said twenty years ago, that was a business sector that pretty much didn't even exist here.
