  Why Get Help?

There is no such thing as a "perfect" community, an "ideal" city, or a "matchless" region. But there are "optimal" locations that meet your future business needs. Locating them requires an organized, systemic, unbiased approach.

Selecting a new site for expansion, relocation or consolidation is a relatively infrequent event that requires expertise not normally found among internal staffs. In fact, such projects can seriously distract executives and managers from normal business operations.

Because you've got a company to run, you can free your time by relying on impartial experts to help in ways that are tailored to meet your requirements. Here, in general, is how the process works:

 The Three Phases of a Location Project

Phase I – Assessment, Outreach & Data Collection: In confidence, Joe Vranich will work with you to understand your business issues, clarify strategy, and focus on lifestyle concerns. The conversations vary considerably depending upon operational needs, the nature of the business, overall future goals, and the concerns and hopes of the participants. A "broad-brush" list of candidate communities emerges from discussions based on logistical, financial and human factors, and personal preferences. The first outreach will be to Economic Development Agencies in the candidate states and localities with a Request for Information about the factors that you have determined are important. Next, a report will be provided to you the most promising locations that warrant further consideration. The inquiries are done on an anonymous basis, which protects your company's identity.

Phase II – Selecting Semi-Finalists: The scoring in that report will provide comparisons regarding the cost of doing business, workforce availability, leasing and utility rates, government taxes and fees, and potential economic incentives. Quality of life factors will include the cost of living, cost of housing, crime and other assets that attract qualified employees and enhance staff retention. From all that, a list of semi-finalists are selected that warrant deeper data gathering ranging from ease in obtaining permits to availability of quality schools, with the objective being to determine finalist communities.

Phase III – Finalist Locations / Due Diligence:After identifying finalist communities (usually three), first-hand impressions are gathered by visiting the locations, speaking with local officials and business leaders, narrowing consideration to specific neighborhoods, inspecting buildings or land, meeting with local workforce experts, initiating negotiations for economic incentives that will be outlined in an official offer letter. (Note: Even at this stage your company's confidentiality can be maintained through use of a project code).

'The hardest part is getting started': That is a statement we hear from virtually everyone contemplating a new location for their enterprise. Call us and we will demystify the process.

'Customization': Whether you are a family-owned business, a mid-sized company, or a large publicly-held corporation, services will be customized to meet your requirements. For example, Joe may work alone on a small project while on larger ones he will tap into his Strategic Partner Network to expand the number and types of experts to work on the project.

For a free initial consultation, contact Joe by email or by calling 949-551-3150. You are guaranteed Instant Confidentiality.
