    I read all of the local papers. Most large companies are required to put out bid notices in the paper. Get on the Internet and check the websites for surrounding cities. Most will put bid notices there also. Call the companies you are interested in. You should hurry, a lot of contracts are signed in January and February.

    We are in Gadsden and started last year. We started by putting out about 5000 fliers and passing out business cards. We had 28 accounts before June, then we got some Government work that has been unbelievable since then. Good Luck
