Goeffrey likes the social setting of his location. The people around are fairly well-to-do people. The population is thick. Being near a main hospital, there are always customers throughout the year with minor periods of 'drought.' The economic environment of this location is also favourable--- with many government and other employees, business in this location is profiting.
