How to Open a New Business in Mount Airy
Unfortunately, there is not one place to call to take care of everything that is involved with starting a new business. Depending on the nature of your new business, federal, state and local licenses and permits may be required. In most areas, there are zoning restrictions that may prevent you from operating a business from a particular location, including your home.

Depending on the size of your business, it may be best to consult with an attorney before getting started. To find out what is required, contact the town(s) that you plan to operate in to see what there licensing requirements are.
