Any business that serves food can endanger public health. That’s why restaurants are some of the most regulated businesses out there. Multiple state, county and city environmental health permits are common for restaurants. Those that serve alcohol need even more licensing. Prospective restaurateurs should expect to apply for at least five licenses and permits and in many cases much more.

In the 19th century, Wichita was a place where cattle and trains met. The midwest's thriving ranching sector kept the East Coast and the good people of Wichita in beef. Nowadays, it's not cowboys driving home Wichita's profits, but aerospace manufacturers including Lear Jets and Boeing. Manufacturing accounts for more than 25 percent of Wichita's economy with healthcare as its secondary industry.
That doesn't mean Wichita doesn't encourage the development of small business. In fact, the city considers it essential to its growth and makes it easy for entrepreneurs to get started. Wichita keeps red tape to a minimum and combined with Kansas' relatively light licensing, setting up shop in Wichita is easier than rounding up a stray heffer.
