I was wondering the same thing. Paying him 3 hours of drive time per day. How many crews do you have to warrant an expansion? I would drive from my existing shop 1.5 hours if the margins were right. Starting a new location IMHO wouldn't be worth it unless my current market was pretty much tapped out or I had outgrown my current space and wanted to split into a new market area.
