I will be moving to NC in the near future and I want to start a small business in the state. I will be moving to Harnett, Johnson, Wake or Cumberland counties, basically anywhere between RDU and Fayetteville, to provide a geographical context. I am moving to be close to my daughter and am relocating from Maryland.

I am open to all suggestions and am interested in feedback from current residents as to what they view as needs or services that are not being met by current businesses in their areas. What service or needs are full of opportunity, but are not being addressed?

In particular, is there a demand for cleaning services? Commercial or Residential, or both?

If not, what services or businesses are in demand?

Would love to hear from local small business owners and consumers on the small business climate in NC and what I could/should do to fill a need or vacuum that would allow me to support my family in North Carolina as a small business owner.

Thank you....
