In the January issue of Professional Carwashing & Detailing, Group Assistant Editor Maria Woodie shares how carwashes, when they add in the right ingredients, can craft tantalizing menus sure to stir up profits.

“For many, having an array of options to choose from seems like the best case scenario with an endless amount of possibilities,” says Woodie in the article. “However once this concept is employed within a business’ service offerings, this vast assortment of choices may become less appealing and more frustrating.”
