Continental Girbau West and Elite Business Investments recently co-hosted the Pre-Clean Preview Open House at CG West headquarters in Santa Fe Springs, Calif. The event drew Southern California vended laundry owners and investors, who took advantage of equipment rebates and demonstrations, special parts pricing, giveaways, expert presentations, and discounts on store brokerage services.
“Our goal was to bring a high level of industry experience and knowledge together so that store owners might enhance their own unique business models and enjoy greater revenue, success and profit,” said CG West Vice President Tod Sorensen.
“This event created an opportunity for us all to share ideas and strategies related to laundry investment, management and best practices,” agreed Carol Dang of Elite. “The presentations were also well received.”
The presentations included “Out of My Comfort Zone,” by Art Jaeger, a multi-store owner in Santa Clarita, Calif.; and “Zombiemats,” by Brian Grell of Eastern Funding.
A subsidiary of Wisconsin-based Continental Girbau Inc., CG West serves the Southern California vended, on-premises and industrial laundry markets by providing equipment, parts, financing, service, warranty and training.
Elite specializes in vended laundry brokering, consulting and development, in addition to offering vended and multi-housing equipment and parts sales. The company also handles route services.
