"Why do I read Site Selection?"
"When searching for our site in the United States I found Site Selection Magazine helpful in narrowing down the areas of the country most suited for our type of operation. When you combine the articles and research features across many editions of the publication, it is indeed an excellent location tool as you canvass the land. I highly recommend Site Selection."
