Trestle Creek Cabinets
Strategy and Implementation Summary
Teton County, Wyoming and Idaho are experiencing steady growth in the high-end residential markets and there is a general consensus of continued growth in the area. Taking part in this growth, while providing attention to the design development, ordering process, project management, and installation will put us on the road to success.
5.1 Competitive Edge
Our competitive edge is our ability to provide high volumes and flexibility in style, while maintaining a quality product backed by excellent service.
5.2 Sales Strategy
Our sales strategy is to make ourselves known through mailings, print advertising, and personal contact to architects and contractors who are primarily involved with the design/construction of commercial development and luxury homes.
Having a showroom will be a sales tool in itself. A showroom will give us exposure to the general public, new arrivals to the area, and construction professionals.
