Creating a Contagious Business Culture
Jason grew Sudsies from 2 to 200 employees and 54 routes with only 6 of them having prior dry cleaning experience. If you’ve ever seen Sudsies team members, you know they resemble more of a happy and empowered posse than simply employees. Jason will share how he builds a contagious business culture that cultivates high employee retention, extreme efficiency, increased sales and a fun work environment.
Diversify or Die: Unveiling the Vision of Increased Piece Counts
Mike Nesbit will present a UNIQUE IDEA centered around diversifying your revenue stream with garment returns. With little to no investment money, you can increase your piece count, diversify and secure a brighter future for your business.
