    Word of Mouth seems to be the best advertising around!

    get your current customers to refur you to a neighbor, and give them a free cut for the referene, helps keep tight routes also

    Networking works best for me, which is a word of mouth with you doing a lot of the talking.

    I think that the "key" in what you asked is "good customers". The number one way to get good customers is by referral. There is an added dimension to this. The people referring are not going to want to look bad by reffing a pita, and the person being referred is not going to want to make the one that referred them look bad either. This will work most of the time, but nothing is 100% fool proof.
