Whether or not I’ll choose a large or small company for a specific purpose will vary from situation to situation. For instance, the best restaurants in my city are all family owned businesses that have been active in my community for generations. I could spend the same amount of money for a comparable meal at a chain restaurant and get served something that is below the quality of the food that leaves my own kitchen. Years ago I learned that I should always avoid the chain restaurants if I wanted to order take out food that I could guarantee would always make the cost value of the meal. I wish I could count on locally owned grocery stores like I do the restaurants. It seems like the only grocery store that is well stocked in my area is the sole large chain grocery store in the middle of town. No matter the time of the week, they always have the products that I need sitting on the shelves. You can’t always assume small businesses will always be better, sometimes larger companies have more resources and many of them utilize those resources to improve their customer service. My heating and cooling supplier is a huge company that services the five neighboring counties in this particular section of my state. They have the best coupons and promotional deals, as well as the most knowledge staff both on the phone and in person. It’s hard for me to imagine dealing with any other company in the future since my experience with them has been so overwhelmingly good. If I ever have to move for any reason, I’m going to miss having them as my HVAC supplier.
