Become Another Missouri Success Story

We can tell you all day long about how great Missouri is, but what do our companies have to say about the Show-Me state? We’ve helped several companies navigate their business expansion or relocation successfully, and put them in the best position possible to succeed from the offset. Starting a business is hard; expanding into another location can be even more difficult sometimes. They say a rock band’s most difficult album to make is their second; there’s more pressure to exceed the audience’s expectations. When you move to Missouri, your expansion will be music to your customer’s ears.

Today there are more financial services firms headquartered in St. Louis than in any other city in the U.S. besides New York. That’s okay. Good competitors make you better.

For manufacturing, overall costs of labor, utilities, cost of land and buildings and the skilled labor pool, Missouri is one of the best values in the country.

From a strategic standpoint, we figured Missouri was the right place to be, because most of our competition was out on the west coast.

Springfield is so diversified and so entrepreneurial. There’s opportunity here, even in a down time. That tells you something about the resiliency of the people and the local economy.

You have a once in a lifetime chance, because COVID has happened, to actually rethink what makes your business special. If you go to the usual place where everyone else is going, you don’t really have a competitive advantage. I don’t miss the coasts at all.
