A Houston consulting firm preparing a plan to enhance Caldwell's local business offerings said it is recruiting restaurants and a clothing store, and they could locate here in six months to a year. Aaron Farmer of The Retail Coach said his firm is recruiting both fast food and casual, sit-down restaurant prospects and a department store specializing in clothing sales. Farmer declined to name the prospects at this time, since negotiations are ongoing. However, he said an announcement could be forthcoming in six months to a year.

Farmer was in town for several weeks conducting the research and briefed local citizens and business leaders on Nov. 30 at the Caldwell Civic Center. The concept is to retain existing customers and draw more local traffic by recruiting new retail businesses. If there is more local business
