Greenthumb Fencing and Landscaping is a long-established local business. The company relies heavily on summer construction projects in order to be a profitable business. Currently, the company is experiencing a slow business period because there hasn’t been much new home construction in the area this year. Greenstone has had several home restoration projects to perform for the older homes in the area, but the company is still relying on the owners of the newly built homes in Priya’s neighbourhood to hire it for all their deck and fencing needs. However, most of the new home construction will not be finished until the end of summer, so the new homeowners will not be moving into their homes for two more months. Greenthumb is desperate for business in the next month. It needs to earn at least $5,000 by the end of the month just to meet employee payroll obligations. Greenthumb needs to meet the payroll or risk losing employees and being understaffed when the new homeowners move into their homes and start ordering deck and fence construction. While Greenthumb will receive a$1,000 payment for a recently completed job in the next week, the company remains eager for new clients. Greenthumb was happy to hear from Priya, and will work on a price for her fence construction before meeting with her the next day.
