EBTH has seen a lot of success in Ohio. To keep this momentum going, it needs to have logistics advantages as well as the technology resources to support its e-commerce operations. Ohio has both.
Ohio is geographically central to 60% of the North American and Canada populations. On the technology side, Ohio has over 295k people in the tech workforce and Cincinnati, the metropolitan area near Blue Ash, is among the top ten for tech markets.
