By Planet Laundry Staff: Statewide Laundry Equipment – with offices in Jacksonville, Tampa, Orlando and Miami, Fla. – recently concluded its three-city Spring Road Show tour.
The company’s spring events kicked off on March 29 in Riverview, Fla., followed by a stop in Orlando on March 30, and ending with a show at Statewide’s Hialeah headquarters, just outside of Miami, on April 5.
The distributor chose a three-stop tour to make it possible for all customers to attend in every region of the state.
“I’ve been coming to the Road Shows for more than 10 years,” said a laundry owner from Orlando. “I attend to learn more about efficiently running my laundry. Every time I attend I walk away with great deals on equipment and parts.”
The Road Shows featured service seminars to help laundry owners better maintain, troubleshoot and repair their own equipment. In addition, each event included an open house with leading industry vendors from across the country – as well as several interactive service demonstrations featuring Statewide and Speed Queen personnel.
“The best part about the Road Shows for me, as a multi-store owner, is networking with trusted vendors and fellow laundry operators in an open, relaxed environment,” explained multi-store owner Tom Rhodes. “I attend every year.”
In addition, the 2016 Speed Queen “Art of the Journey” winners (and Statewide customers) Bob and Donna Wallner made special appearances at both the Riverview and Orlando shows.
All three of the Road Show events featured prizes and raffled giveaways.
Statewide Laundry Equipment holds Road Shows with service seminars each spring and fall.
