I got an RFP in Dec. for a retirement community and it looks like I have made it into the finals and the vendor will be chosen here in the next few weeks. The retirement home has a west and east side location, fairly big jobs too about 3-4 acres each. Whats interesting is along with the retirement homes this company provides seniors who live in there own homes an opportunity to join an association that list vendors for home delivered services, lawn mowing, plumbing, grocery shopping etc.. As of now there is 125 members with a projected 2,000 members by 2008. They are looking for one vedor in several catagories so if I did get the contract I would be the only lawn mainteance vendor listed. Whats nice is I wouldnt have to send bills to each customer, I send an itemized bill for the services for that month and the retirement home sends me a check. I know for some dealing with a butt load of seniors doesnt sound fun, but I would have to say that the seniors I do have been great customers so far. I'll give more details about the bid when I find out more just thought I would share.
