ATLANTA (April 13, 2012) — Viva Las Vegas! Tradebank International Inc. (Tradebank) has just launched Tradebank of Las Vegas as its newest outlet. Tradebank members will now be able to barter — for business or pleasure — in the entertainment capital of the world. This announcement was made today by Todd Gerry, President of Tradebank International Franchising Corporation.
Regional Owner Carita Strawn and Regional Director Joe Lotito are excited to build a vast Tradebank network in Las Vegas. “Naturally, we’re going to focus on entertainment — such as shows, hotels and restaurants — to entice Tradebank clients to visit and enjoy their experiences while spending their trade dollars,” stated Lotito who has more than 20 years of sales experience as manager and owner of several businesses. “We will also build a network of local businesses in Clark County, using the model that has been successful with the other Tradebank franchise outlets nationwide.
“The economy in Las Vegas, which has been hurting, is the perfect environment for barter to take off,” added Strawn. “We are excited to teach small business owners and management teams of large operations about the many benefits of barter — especially the solution it provides for excess capacity of products and services.”
“Tradebank of Las Vegas gives Tradebank International our most West footprint which will undoubtedly act as a gateway for future franchise development along the West Coast,” said Gerry. “Carita and Joe bring a tremendous amount of initiative and professionalism to the table and we are confident that they will create a thriving barter economy in the Las Vegas marketplace by providing local business with much needed opportunities to improve cash flow, ultimately making their businesses more profitable.”
