While single territories covering a population of between 200,000 and 250,000 are readily affordable, an attractive business strategy to grow your business may be through ownership of multiple territories. Owning two or three territories may allow you to achieve economies of scale with one central operation and, depending on geography, a smaller satellite office if necessary.
