I really don't care what the maintenance costs are with that kind of top line. Hell, the profit from beer sales pay for those...don't forget -- it's Wisconsin.
I usually reframe from commenting on anything Kohler, being that I have worked for them for the past thirteen years. But I just wanted to thank Shivas for the what possibly could be a compliment and to point out that you pay more for water.
Mr. Kohler and the family know how to plan, build and market a product. Think of the village itself, most guests do not concern themselves with the fact that there is a Foundry across the road from the resort. Thanks in part to the Landscaping, layout and foresight which can be traced back to Olmstead, they see a unique and quaint village. They may stroll into the Design center and see some of the other products offered by Kohler or venture to Woodlake and find more offerings, the latest is our line of fine chocolates.
Mr. Kohler was thinking of a walking course when walking wasn't popular, he restored a factory housing facility to a five diamond resort, he has created a brand associated with fine living. In short the guy has the vision and determination to fully pursue any endeavor to a standard that meets his expectations. When it's done, it will operate like any other bussiness and meet the same ideals.
