TadZo Site Selection Insights

Finding the optimal location is a balancing act between costs and risks.

sites & buildings evaluation


Are there available building or sites ready for your project in desired communities? Can the community meet your timeline?

incentive negotiations


What statutory incentives are available for your project? What else is the state or community willing to provide to win your business? What additional burdens, if any, will incentives incur for your project? What is the authorization process? How does your company comply to maximize incentive value?

Due diligence


Will the community and service providers deliver on promises? What risks do you need to be aware of in proceeding with your project?

logistics & supply chain optimization


Based on potential locations, what are the transportation costs, shipping methods, and timeliness for input and final goods delivery that make the most sense for your project?

infrastructure & utilities assessment


What communities have utilities to support your business needs? Is the infrastructure installed at desired sites or will the installation delay your project? Are the community connection and operational fees viable in your pro forma?

workforce pipeline assessment


What location options will provide the best resources for ongoing skill upgrades? Which areas are investing in students to be your future employees? Which areas may present risks for recruiting, relocating and ultimately retaining employees?
