I thought all you Jones guys would enjoy this....

I was driving down I-70 this morning towards my favorite mid-sized Midwestern town.  Having started my day rather early, I felt the need for a little caffeine.  So I get off on State Highway 41 in Terre Haute, IN, having seen a Starbucks billboard as I traveled down the highway.

Lo...and what do I see?  The proud UBS Keys logo right there in the strip mall next to Starbucks!  Just across the road from the Drury Inn.  I wish I'd though to snap a picture with my camera phone so I could post it for y'all.

There's a Mutual Fund Store in a strip mall in Ft Wayne Indiana.  I saw it while stopping off the intersate to use the can at a gas station.

Being next to a Starbucks is probably a good location for any firm.  Plus you could check out the MILFs all day.

There are a ton of EDJ offices in small towns across the country right smack in the middle of the town square.  In suburbia they are more likely to be in strip malls or professional office complexes because that's where the commercial business is.  My town is large enough that we don't have a classic town square.  I've seen Wachovia offices next to tattoo shops, UBS offices next to grocery stores, indy offices in little rundown houses, and a long list of others in similar locations.  In my opinion, it doesn't matter where your office is.  What matters is what you do with it.  I've seen guys with really sweet office setups struggling to keep their jobs and others who really need to move thriving.  You got a phone, computer, and some people to talk to and you're all set.

Agreed.  I just found this to be a prominent contradiction to an old stereotype.  Thought it would be interesting to share....

We thank you for thinking of us while driving through the midwest.

I am looking to pilot the EDJ office in The Champagne Room. Can't wait!

Of course UBS locates next to Starbucks.  Where do you think the find "talented people" for upper management.  Lost $50B so far and want investors to stay with them.
