Now that the holiday season is upon us, 2017 will be here in no time. And, barring any unknown events and according to experts in the industry, next year should also provide great returns for carwash owners and operators.

Carwash competition is currently high on a local level and will continue to increase in many areas of the country next year. While some have reported near market saturation in a few regions, experts say there are plenty of opportunities to be had using express carwash formats in many parts of the U.S.

In the article, “Strength with numbers,” we interviewed three leading carwash professionals on this subject. While demand is high, it is no time for carwash owners to sit idle.

As your carwash competition radius shrinks, it will be the small details of your business, including its friendliness, cleanliness and customer service orientated culture, that will create the ultimate customer experience that buyers frequently seek from a carwash. This experience will create customer loyalty and word-of-mouth new business.    

Thank you all for reading our magazine, and we hope you enjoy this issue. We wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving as well.
