Although largely a suburb of Kansas City, Overland Park has a substantial population and economy of its own. Most notably, Overland Park is world headquarters from Sprint Nextel employing more than 18,000 people and as a result, has become a hub for numerous communications and technology companies. Entrepreneurs looking to participate in Overland Park's industrious and growing economy will find setting up shop relatively easy. Overland Park welcomes business and requires relatively few local business licenses and permits. Better yet, the license application process is simple and streamlined. Many businesses also need licenses and permits from Kansas, which has strong centralized systems for business regulation and licensing.
