What Does This Mean to Your Business?
Creating more jobs through expansions and relocations means more people working and more dollars circulating through the community. That has a positive impact on nearly all businesses, from day care centers to appliance stores, from CPAs to landscape companies. Commercial construction projects put even more people to work; some may be your customers or your suppliers.
