1. Open another location.
– This may not be the best choice, considering different variables in your environment, but this is often times what comes to mind first to many businessmen. Business owner, consultant, and entreprenuer Nick Malis says, “Expansion isn’t always the best answer. It’s all dependant on your planning, research, and more.”

Look at economic trends, for indications of how your company will stay present and remain profitable.
Make sure you have an AMAZING management team for this location: You’ll need them to get this new location up and running.
Determine financial options. Figure the best way to obtain money for your location. Perhaps you need a loan? Don’t have the credit for it? Don’t worry, we have a business credit program.
Choose a GREAT location for THE BUSINESS. Not for what is the cheapest and easiest, but rather for what’s best for business.
Make sure you manage to keep a profit, as well as a steady growth throughout the years.
