Kettle said, "With $26 million available to us, we are moving forward with several Letters Of Interests' in the Mid-West and on the East Coast. Our business plan calls for a national chain of GAWK data centers, some of which may be converted to one-stop shops for small business owners to buy services like VOIP, cloud computing, web creation & maintenance, and more. We plan on hiring local technological 'whiz kids' to advise and guide businesses, and thus build new tax bases for those cities."
