During these events, industry leaders unveiled the latest the vended laundry business has to offer, including a special presentation on Speed Queen's newest payment systems and equipment features, and a discussion about laundromat marketing.
Industry vendors were on site to meet with attendees during a vendor showcase that was held during all three road shows. What's more, service seminars - led by Speed Queen service managers - featured interactive video technology to help enhance the learning experience.
Special financing and discounts on soap and parts also were made available during the shows.
"I'm a first-time coin laundry entrepreneur," explained local store owner Devon Stainrod. "This is where I save money on the different products. It's a must because, as a laundry owner, you're always trying to reduce your operating costs. This is where I come to save on soap, save on parts. I love the Statewide team."
