Thank you to our readers - Professional Carwashing & Detailing

Thank you to our readers

Our readers are integral to our editorial planning throughout the year.

As the year winds down, actual year-end profits for this year are starting to be realized. This is also the time of year when plans for the coming year are forged and ready for action.

So, how did your business fare in 2017, and what are the exciting plans you and your team have in store for 2018?

Were you, like many other carwashes, able to grow your business this year, and are you anticipating a fresh start with new, exciting goals for next year? Or, will you be taking another route, such as preparing to sell your carwash business — a strategy that is outlined later in this issue?

Whether you are entering the business or leaving it, please understand that you play a huge role in our industry, including making our brand a success in print and online throughout the year.

From engaging on our various social media platforms — Facebook, LinkedIn as well as Twitter — to simply reading an article in our magazine, your efforts help make us better. We would like to use this month of reflection and gratitude to say “thank you” to all of our readers, writers, customers and industry partners.

Our entire staff remains committed to advancing our market’s level of education and business opportunities for carwash owners and operators. However, in order for us to meet that goal, we rely partly on the feedback we receive from carwash professionals.

For instance, while attending the most recent NRCC show in Atlantic City, New Jersey, which was held from Oct. 2-4, members of Professional Carwashing & Detailing took advantage of learning from our brand’s most powerful resources for editorial planning — our print publication and online readers.

Thank you to all attendees of the 2017 industry trade shows and events who took time to stop by our booth or have a conversation with us in order to learn about our brand, offer feedback, sign up for our suite of digital as well as print product offerings or simply to pick up our latest issue or show guide.

We look forward to seeing all of our friends, industry partners and new readers at the 2018 shows.

Thank you all for reading our magazine, website, Carwash eNews and myriad of other resources available from our brand, and we hope you enjoy this issue. We wish you and your families a Happy Thanksgiving as well.
