The problem of making hierarchical locational decisions is modeled. Four major requirements are identified and treated: the coexistence of a wide range of hierarchical types and service groups, a flexible (fixed and variable) cost structure, and interservice referals. A mixed-integer linear programming model is developed and applied to several problems documented in the literature, as well as to a new problem that fully exercises the model's capabilities.
