New Location In Hot Springs

Discussion in 'Business Operations' started by sfddelta1, Feb 7, 2008.

  1. Well we finally took a big plunge and opened a new location in Hot Springs Arkansas about 3 hours from our base of operations.

    We have one nice 12 month contract now and are bidding a few more and with the res. season coming up hopefully things are looking good

    congrats, we are almost in the same situation, well deff not hot springs... wasnt there a movie about that before?

    we are growing into 2 other markets this year and we are trying to figure out how to work everything over if we are only purchasing 4-5 more commercial walk behinds or tigers..... of course we need to figure something out for management, how are you doing it exactly. i mean we will only be about 1.5 hours away from home base, so not near as bad as you got 3 hrs away. did you hire a manager?

    PM me if you want

    we do not actually want to open up 2 more locations, dont want to put more apples in the basket, just expand, but it will be hard to and need to figure out the way to do it
