Are you thinking about expanding your business to a second location? If so, make sure your company is truly ready. First ask whether you can duplicate the success of your current location at another one. Also look into how an expansion might create conflicts between the two locations. Explore the financial aspects, too. How will you fund the expansion? Can your cash flow keep up with building costs? And don’t overlook potential tax issues, especially when crossing state lines. We can help you fully assess the pluses and minuses of a potential business expansion.
