At the turn of the 20th Century, people met at the World's Fair in Saint Louis as well as the corresponding Olympic Games. Judy Garland regaled the sound of the city's trolleys. Today, however, the "ding ding ding" has been replaced with the sounds of cars, buses, trains and airplanes. A much more modern Saint Louis is a regional economic center with a more than $11 billion a year economy.
At present, Saint Louis has significant healthcare, social service, professional ,retail and commercial transportation center. Because of its central position in the country and its location along the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers, Saint Louis is a key point for moving goods around the nation.
Although its business licensing is not as complex as Missouri's other major metropolis, Kansas City, Saint Louis has a large volume of licenses and permits. Entrepreneurs should expect a fair volume of paperwork and complex license fees and taxes.
