Business in Northern New Mexico

The business climate in Northern New Mexico is as diverse as its people. Our metropolitan population of 146,400 swells in Santa Fe as up to a million tourists pass through “The City Different” each year. This makes it an ideal place to do business, and helps explains why in August 2013, Forbes Magazine designated it as one of the top 100 Best Small Places for Business and Career. Our goal is to offer a wide variety of business opportunities to satisfy the needs of every buyer.

What is the primary benefit of buying an existing business? The answer is simple. The likelihood that you will succeed is greater than if you elect to start a business from scratch. With an existing business many essential assets – like clients lists, inventory, equipment, location, vendors and an established reputation – are already in place.
