Hi..All, I am an Indian enterprenuer planing to start a small business in USA begining of 2010. I wish to get help on zeroing on location where to move as USA is too big and can get difficult to knw, where to begin. Our Business interest will be looking into supplying in industries in Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals and Cold Chain. So, need to find location where I can move in with following...

-I will be with family two young children, so good schools is desirable,
-Do not look to stay in city - too crowded, but not too isolated too
-Easy transition and acceptability for an Indian family in neighberhood.
-Good availablility of Indian food and eatery.
-Not too harsh winter,

Basically, where I can raise family without much edo, can start working with bit of less travelling (if there are any industrial zones), and quite little place.

My renting and relocating budget will be modest not too high but not too poor either.

So folks, do lemme knw, Western or Eastern or Middle or Southern USA and ne specific locations to start looking at.

Tx

Snehal

Hi Snehal, welcome! There are a lot of places to look at. I'm going to steer you toward a place I know well and think you would fit in well there. The place is Chapel Hill, NC. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chapel_hill,_nc

It's a college town, home of the University of North Carolina. The university is one of the best in the US and attracts students from all over the US and the world. The Chapel Hill community is well educated and diverse.

Chapel Hill is a beautiful town, with all the amenities of a much larger city in a smaller town environment.

Chapel Hill offers FREE bus service which is great, and makes getting around town without driving a nice option...especially for kids.
http://www.townofchapelhill.org/index.aspx?page=700

Chapel Hill is also quite safe, a nice thing to have when you have children/family. There is very little violent crime and most crimes are college campus oriented
such as stolen bicycles, etc.

There are 4 Indian restaurants in Chapel Hill alone, even more if you add neighboring towns.

I like India Palace a lot, it's been there for many years.

The public schools are excellent and rated amongst the highest in the US. The student population is diverse and welcoming to newcomers.About the District - Who We Are

The area features an ideal four season climate without the extremes of any of the seasons. Average Weather for Chapel Hill, NC - Temperature and Precipitation

Rents in the area are fairly modest when compared to other places with a high quality of life.
Convenient location on Homestead Rd. (http://raleigh.craigslist.org/apa/1296714761.html - broken link)
Village West - TH just minutes to downtown CH, UNC (http://raleigh.craigslist.org/apa/1291946602.html - broken link)
254 Brookberry Circle- nice 3BR in Finley Forest (http://raleigh.craigslist.org/apa/1288195669.html - broken link)
Beautiful 3BR 3 BA -202B Garden St nr Bl Cross-Bl S, UNC, I40 (http://raleigh.craigslist.org/apa/1284276975.html - broken link)

The area is home to many high tech industries and would be a great fit for your business.

Eastern Pennsylvania near the New Jersey border or New Jersey will put you close the heart or the US Pharmaceutical industry. I mentioned Pennsylvania because you will find less expensive housing.

You will probably find a strong Indian community in NJ but there are quite a few in the Philadelphia area.

Check some of the Indian Internet sites and try to make some connection, that way you will get good information about the communities.

I would recommend New Jersey, it would put you in the middle of the Northeastern idustrial zone and is a great place to raise a family.

I think this is an excellent suggestion (Eastern PA).. You would be near the pharma industry and still be able to live relatively cheaply. It's also very pretty there.

In the OP, a modest budget and not harsh winters were a request. The Philadelphia area and most of New Jersey aren't exactly fit for those on a modest budget. The winters here though while not snow intensive, are quite cold and quite long.

True. There is a lot of fantastic Indian food and the winters here in the DFW are mild (can get quite cold at times; below zero), but this area has 6.5 million people or I would have suggested DFW.

I wouldn't consider it too long. Three months are just about right to me. *shrugs*

Thats why I suggested eastern PA. How long would you say the winters are in PA?
