“As a small business owner, I am always looking for opportunities to learn and grow. I enjoyed having the opportunity to meet with Austin. His insights helped me to see the potential for our business and other businesses in our community as well. That’s really exciting to me.”

“As a local business owner, the Retail Coach data has given us the opportunity to sell GE Cafeˊ appliances. GE Cafeˊ appliances are a higher end appliance that we have been trying for months to persuade our supplier to allow us to sell. It wasn’t until I sent them the data that showed our 30,000 plus market area and the estimated 2% growth in appliance sales that they immediately approved us.”
