Expansion Plans? Look to Seaside for Funding.

There are plenty of ways a small business can grow, such as expanding product and service lines or entering new markets. But sometimes just duplicating a successful operation by opening another location is the simplest approach.

If you’re thinking of adding one or more locations, be sure to do your homework before making a move. Finding answers to these questions can help you determine if this will be a positive step for your company.

Key Questions

  • If yours is a business-to-business firm, do you have existing clients in the area where you’re considering opening a new space?
  • If you sell to consumers, is there a demand for your products or services in the area you’re thinking of expanding to? Consider the area’s demographics, economy, competitors and costs to do business, including hiring local employees.
  • Have you assessed the policies and procedures that make your business a success? In order to replicate them at a new location, they’ll need to be clearly expressed.
  • Will you be able to adequately monitor the performance of employees at all locations and ensure that they all understand and implement the company’s values?
