The business landscape in the United States has undergone quite a transformation in recent years. Old favorites have fallen by the wayside, and new names have popped up to take their place atop the list of biggest companies in America. In fact, many of today’s top companies didn’t even exist 15 years ago! To give you an idea of how much the business world has changed, we’ve put together this list of 5 businesses that flourished in the U.S. this year. Read on to find out which companies made the cut.
1) Garbage Plastics Recycling
Waste plastic has become a real problem, but it is also an opportunity to help you start your own small business. The best business development in the USA is to remove the plastic in the shape of recycling. There are a lot of waste companies out there that want your plastic trash because they can make money by recycling. So if you have some space and some time on your hands, why not give these businesses some money by collecting their trash for them? Doing so will leave you with extra cash and spare time to do whatever you want. So get started today! The earlier you begin, the sooner you’ll be raking in piles of money. You’re just a few hours away from living your dream life as a self-made entrepreneur. What could be better than that? Start right now by picking up your first load of recyclable materials!

2) Music Streaming
In 2006, a young Swedish startup called Spotify rocked onto the scene by offering users an all-you-can-eat approach to music streaming. Users could listen to any song on-demand for free, or they could sign up for a $10 per month subscription plan that would remove ads and allow them to download songs to their devices. The company now boasts more than 70 million users worldwide, and its paid subscriber base has swelled from zero percent to 20 percent in just four years. With these kinds of results, it’s no wonder other companies are trying to replicate Spotify’s success—and succeeding. Pandora is another example of a popular digital radio service that lets users create custom stations based on artists or songs. It’s also available as a mobile app for both Android and iOS systems.
3) Pizza Delivery
The classic pizza business. Don’t have time to cook? Want your meal piping hot and ready for you when you walk through your door? Pizza delivery allows both businesses and customers to hit a home run. Pizza is one of America’s favorite foods, so there’s no shortage of people ready to take it off your hands! In terms of risk, pizza delivery has some of the lowest food-safety concerns—but make sure you understand how delivery works before jumping into a partnership. For example, will you be delivering or will they? How much are they charging per order? What percentage are you getting on each sale? These details can vary wildly depending on who you’re working with. Make sure that you know what to expect upfront. You may also want to read about franchising as an option. If you’re not interested in starting a new restaurant from scratch but still want to own a pizzeria, franchising may be right for you. You could also go big by opening multiple locations at once! If that sounds like too much work (and overhead), consider partnering with someone else who already owns locations nearby and focus on just supplying those stores instead of opening new ones yourself.
4) Mobile App Development
What good is a smartphone if you don’t have great apps to run on it? To give your customers (or potential customers) exactly what they want, look into developing an app. While it may seem like a more expensive way to get going (getting an app built can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $200,000), it might be worth considering: The global mobile market is expected to grow by more than 38 percent over 2013 by 2017. And with Google Play and Apple App Store revenues set to reach $38 billion in 2014, there’s no better time to develop a killer app. If building one yourself seems too daunting of a task, consider working with someone who already has experience creating apps for businesses—and ask them how much their services would cost.
5) Online Sports Betting
A decade or so ago, if you told anyone that you bet on sports online, you’d be greeted with one of two responses: scorn or awkward silence. These days, though, there’s no more awkward silence. In fact, many people can barely conceal their excitement when they talk about sports betting online—and it’s not hard to see why. The convenience and ease of placing a wager from home is unparalleled by any other form of gambling. It doesn’t matter what time it is; all you need is an Internet connection and a computer, tablet or smartphone. And unlike traditional bookies which are only open during business hours (and even then, only five days per week), online sportsbooks are available 24/7/365. You don’t even have to leave your house! You simply log onto your favorite sportsbook website, place your bets, watch some games and wait for your winnings to roll in. What could be easier? But let’s back up for a second. How did we get here? Where did online sports betting come from? Well, it came from humble beginnings.
