EwingBradley T. Ewing, C.T. McLaughlin Chair of Free Enterprise and principal at Ph.D. Resource Group, LLC, published a study titled "Medium-Size Cities Outshine Large Ones in Business Relocation."

The study, which was conducted this summer, asked business leaders from cities of all sizes about multiple factors related to facilitating business success and how their current locations rated in terms of each of these factors. The study found that mid-sized cities outperformed large cities in almost every measure of satisfaction.

"The findings in the study were definitive. Business owners are resoundingly more satisfied in mid-sized markets than in larger, more congested areas," Ewing said. "Communities like Amarillo offer exactly what companies are looking for—access to high quality infrastructure, lifestyle, capable workforce and other essential ingredients for long-term growth and success."
