‘Express’ motors through three cities in central, south Florida

TAMPA, Fla. — Commercial laundry distributor Statewide Laundry Equipment recently concluded its three-stop Spring Road Show series in the Sunshine State, the company reports.

The tour kicked off here March 13 at TPepin’s Hospitality Centre. Next was Orlando on March 14, and the event wrapped its journey with a March 21 stop at Statewide’s South Florida headquarters, just outside Miami.

Attendees were invited to “Hop Aboard the Statewide Road Show Express” to listen to presentations by industry leaders. There was a special presentation on Speed Queen’s new payment systems and equipment features, as well as on Laundromat marketing.

Representatives from industry vendors met with customers during a “vendor showcase” staged at each Spring Road Show stop. Service seminars instructed by Speed Queen service managers incorporated interactive video technology to enhance the learning experience.

Special financing and discounts on soap and parts were made available during the shows.

“I’m a first(-time) coin laundry entrepreneur,” says Devon Stainrod, Park & Starkey Laundry in Seminole, Fla. “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.”

Statewide organizes the Spring Road Shows each year in central and south Florida to benefit the laundry owner community across the state.

The company has released a 2018 Spring Road Show highlight video on its YouTube channel.
