Re: Wooing Businesses To Omaha

"Hi Joe Zombie. I really enjoy Zombie Burger and I know that many of my friends in Omaha do too. You should open a location in Omaha. It would be great. I feel you could make huge profits in Omaha because they don't have the type of burger that you sell."

What else can you do?

This seems pretty easy. It's just east of 16th street. There's open land there, but the highway would need to be elevated due to some trains.

Also I would never drive on this road.
