Some companies do not even think aboutthe long term goals of their company nor what type of impact they will have onthe community they are building a new business in or around. They only look athow much money they can make by expanding or building in a certain area.Sometimes the best parts of town are not always the most profitable ones.There was a local pizza place that I worked for a long time ago in the late 90's.They were located near the downtown area in a not so great neighborhood. Itwas not the worst but no where near the best. They strategically placed thisstore there because the owners knew they could make money based on thesurrounding areas; businesses, schools, apartments, etc. They knew what kindof pizza store they were and what types of deals they would be giving andmoved to their target market.
