Stage Three: Your Request for Consideration
Here you’ll be asked to complete an application stating your good faith intention to pursue more detailed business discussions with Hwy 55. The application carries no legal obligation, but is a sign of good faith of your sincere interest.
Stage Four: Call with Your Area Developer
Assuming your interest is in an area already under development, you’ll speak with the leader of that organization, who will provide your primary level of support. Should you join the Hwy 55 family, it’s an opportunity to talk with of this leader, who will have a strong vested interest in assuring your success.
