    Whats with the national grounds companies (brickman) buying up the local companies and telling the local businesses that they should go with a national company to take care all of their properties nationally that is usually done locally.

    i talked to 3 businesses yesterday that were torre contracts and figured it would be a breech in contract being bought out so i targeted them. All 3 are national chains and all said they were going to a national company to take care of the accounts. Im just ranting because this is happening more and more.

    I wouldn't classify a national chain as a local business.
