Well we are starting to layout our marketing for the new area. Our target area is about a 5mile square with approx 16 communities. Our goal is to really sell ourselves as being full service and show our quality with being fully licensed also.

Going to start direct mailing in mid Oct. with a follow up in mid Jan.
