CAR WASHES IN THE DOLDRUMS

IT'S TIME TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

WORKING IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ACWA

 

You can't change the weather and you can't knock out your competition  but you CAN attract more car owner customers to your wash from your own target market.

You have a great message to sell and you can back it up with free giveaways for encouragement.

Doesn't have to cost money - just time - increasing profits is your motivation...

 

Come to the next round of ACWA State meetings and be part of an active, strong movement to grow this industry.  Together we can make a big difference - steadily increasing the percentage of car owners who regularly use commercial car washes.CARTOON RED CAR

 

Don't come alone - bring your partners,  your mates in the industry,  your senior attendants. This is the best way to pick up great new ideas for maintenance, for products and services,  as well as for marketing.

 

You don't have to be a current member of ACWA to come to a State meeting - we hope that it will help persuade you to become a supporter of your industry association. Come along and make yourself known - the ACWA State reps will look forward to meeting you.
