For new investors entering the carwashing market, staying up to date on the various carwash types and trends is key. And with the prevalent competition in the industry, this holds true for established carwashes as well.

Doing your due diligence, whether a rookie or a veteran carwash owner/operator, to ensure your car care business succeeds means researching the latest technologies and techniques, staying current on industry-related news and trends, and attending industry trade shows, such as the The Car Wash Show™ 2016.

In addition, implementing effective customer management practices and modern marketing strategies can help carwashes stay ahead of the competition and boost their bottom lines.
