The state with the lowest obesity rate was one of the ones with the highest small business failures. The state with the lowest small business failure rate was one of those with the highest obesity rate. I'm guessing most small businesses are food related.
I am a former commercial banker that financed small businesses in six of the seven states identified as having the highest small business failures. Of those six states, five (Maine, Vermont, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming) have relatively few businesses that are not small businesses. Therefore, the failure rate information would be more meaningful if based on a percentage of total small businesses in the state rather than per capita. But, to your point - yes, many restaurants fail (as I know too well having had to workout a few), as do retail stores, and convenience stores. As my first lending manager once said: "it isn't a question of if a convenience store will fail, it's only a question of when."
