Known both for its agriculture and industry, Ohio has long been one of the most important economies in the Union. Although some Ohio cities have faced tough times during the recent recession, entrepreneurs are beginning to set up shop again. Significant regulation means small business owners may need a fair number of Ohio licenses and permits -- particularly service providers and professionals.
In Ohio, america’s aging population has led to a variety of businesses centered around senior care. Adult daycare services is one of the newest of these options.
