Which telephone service provider do you prefer to use? What about your banking preference? These decisions could be swayed by the presence of certain companies in your particular state of residence. This interesting map, created by Mike Simmons in collaboration with Broadview Networks, shows you the largest company by revenue in each state. The information was gathered by Hoovers, a Dun & Bradstreet company, and does not include subsidiaries or companies with foreign offices.
Many of the companies leading the way in their respective states, like the Sands casino in Nevada or GM in Michigan (generating $155.4 billion in revenue), come with little surprise. But in a state like Washington, famous for business giants including Microsoft and Boeing, Costco actually takes the lead through its retail sales, with $105.1 billion in annual revenue!
Are you surprised by the top earning company in your state?
