Quotes from Clients

When you hire The Retail Coach you are not just buying data, you are hiring a coach to help you with your retail development needs. I highly recommend them to any community seeking to effectively recruit retail development.

Dave Quinn, CEcDExec. Director | Bastrop Economic Development Corp.

After visiting our city, The Retail Coach staff were able to quickly recognize the challenges of our rapidly growing community and identify submarkets for retail attraction. The time they spent in the community and surrounding areas, meeting with community representatives and really working to understand our retail challenges, made the difference.

Our intention was to use The Retail Coach’s study as a business retention tool, but another benefit is the communication tool it has proven to be for local property owners and real estate brokers.

As a client of The Retail Coach, I have witnessed first-hand success with their skilled team. The staff at The Retail Coach deliver the knowledge, skill, and rapport necessary to recruit retail into regions seeking progression, all while taking the difficulty away from the municipalities.

Sean OvereynderEconomic Development Director | Floydada, TX

It is very refreshing to work with The Retail Coach. With some consultants, once you have paid, it becomes harder to get your phone calls returned. Not so with The Retail Coach team, who is always responsive to all of my needs. I appreciate how they set up retailer appointments for me, and help with the follow-up.
