Master Decker: Expansion Opportunities
In May 2017, the owner and operator of Master Decker, a deck restoration business, had an opportunity to expand his business by adding to the company's current service offerings. His three expansion alternatives were offering deck building, marketing an exclusive line of stains, and manufacturing deck cleaning chemicals. He planned to analyze the costs and benefits of each alternative. He wanted to continue growing the business but wondered which of these options, or combination of options, would provide the best return on investment for his company. Because he had no set timeline, he wanted to move forward with at least one of the options immediately.
