Using a comma would be confusing. One might think the company is just making two things, instead of making one thing from another. For example, replace "good places" by "this" and "great places" by "that":
"Making this, that."
can be interpreted as "making this and that", while
"Making this that"
would be interpreted as "making that from this".
