    The Death Knell! Population 5300!!

    So what is the big picture plan on why people do this? Is it a tax right off? I used to be a multi-unit subway franchise and I can understand why they build subways on top of each other, it's good for the franchise. I don't understand why someone will a few million in the bank look at an...

    How did you pick the name for your wash?

    I'm 90% sure it will be something duck related. The more I look the more I realize that if it's wet and aquatic related someone somewhere has used it in a name for a carwash.

    How did you pick the name for your wash?

    Here I am worried about picking something too similar to someone else's name & I just stumbled on Splish splash. Wow I think it's one of the most common carwash names that I've come across.

    colored led strip lights for IBA

    I wish more people would post pictures of their lighting. I think G&G quoted a 6 fixture IBA package for ballpark 12k. I haven't read a single negative review on G&G's lighting. I'll probably go with them when I'm ready to buy but I would love to see other viable options. I'm surprised more...

    Can a experienced veteran impart some IBA wisdom on me?

    I will upgrade it because I know it's the right thing to do. I just have a hard time it philosophically because I know it still works fine. It's the same reason Mcdonald's requires their franchises to update and remodel their stores every 15/20 years. they just start to look old and worn down...

    Can a experienced veteran impart some IBA wisdom on me?

    I'm just having a hard time seeing an exponential improvement in the quality of the wash for the amount of money a new unit will cost me. I see it like upgrading from an iPhone 9 to an iPhone 12. Ya, there are improvements, but it is really worth the 200k? I can understand it if your a busy...

    Can a experienced veteran impart some IBA wisdom on me?

    I've been upgrading my small town wash over the last year. We installed new vacs with nayax readers and bill validators. This upcoming month we will be installing new ss bay meter boxes and Premier in bay dryers. I have a list of the other little upgrades that I want to make, but I can't stop...

    Need about 50 padlocks keyed alike

    I own 100 rental properties and I use this company. https://landlordlocks.com/products/padlocks/ You can get them all keyed the same or have different keys and you can get a master key that will open them all.

    Is it normal for carwash insurance provider to request

    Since I'm new to the business I wasn't sure if this was normal for this industry. I had never had an insurance company ask for a P&L for my subway franchises, bar, campground, garbage disposal business, or apartment rentals.

    How did you pick the name for your wash?

    Thank you for your reply I was being cheeky with the name Cluck Cluck because of the similarity to Quick Quack. I agree with your points about aquatic animals.. : ) Once I narrow it down to a few names I'll post to see what you guys think : )

    Is it normal for carwash insurance provider to request

    I did it for this year. I think if they ask again next year I'm going to push back to get a better understanding of why & or find a different provider.
