We will be taking some or all of our jobs to the Salt Lake area, where it appears labor costs will be about half, and commercial space costs will be about a third. We are currently on the west side of LA, and make consumer products which are sold online.

Have any other small business owners considered doing this?

unless your business is dependent on local/walk up business - and your customer base prefers someone local to work with, I'd wonder why more businesses aren't thinking about relocating to states with lower costs.

how many employees do you expect to hire?

Well the increased labor, commercial rent, as well as other things like homeless knife attacks, and now pot smell everywhere, just popped up in the last year or two. So for many, there was no real need until now.

We'll probably start with 2 to 5 people in SLC
