Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You can have a joint venture, or you can have a contractor agreement or you can actually create a new LLC in each state with your corporation as a member and the other company as another member of the LLC.
I would think that the LLC formation and having a membership agreement that spells out the terms of the deal for each deal you enter would be the simplest way of doing this business as then each state would have their own separate LLC and would insulate your company and the other company from liability.
