Case Study: Suds Helps New Car Wash Owners Find Secret to Grand Opening Success

The strategies Suds will share during Data2Dollars Two are the same ones they employ to achieve success for their clients. Take for example Royal Car Wash. When Danny and Anthony Daniele opened their first Royal Car Wash in 2011, they thought they’d achieve the same instant success they experienced in opening restuarants with their family business the Daniele Family Companies. While they eventually gained traction with their first wash, the learning curve turned out to be steeper than they expected.

“The first two years were pretty tough,” Danny Daniele said. “Revenue was low. Profits were low.”

Some of the Danieles’ mentors in the car wash industry recommended Suds, a marketing agency owned by DRB that exclusively serves the car wash and quick lube industries. The Danieles met the Suds team at an industry trade show and were immediately impressed.

“They seemed to have more experience in marketing with car washes than any other marketing agency,” Danny said.

That made the decision easy. Royal Car Wash engaged Suds in the grand opening of their car wash in the Irondequoit area of Rochester, NY.

With Suds’ help, Royal Car Wash promoted their grand opening and free car washes like they had never done before, sending out 20,000 postcards and investing $5,000 in social media advertising.

“We went in with a much clearer plan of how many club plans we wanted to have in the first 90 days, and we planned for pre-opening, opening and post-opening,” Danny said. “The goal was to get 1,000 members within 90 days. We ended up meeting and exceeding that goal. Actually, we got 1,243 members!”

Perhaps the most important thing Suds did was help them establish a strong email marketing program, ensuring that Royal Car Wash was capturing customer emails.

“We learned the importance of getting customer information in those first two weeks,” Danny said. “By doing that, we had a list of almost 10,0000 contacts we could nurture and call upon.”

The Danieles have since opened three additional locations with Suds. Their most recent grand opening for their West Seneca location broke records in sales, wash plan signups and car counts.

“It keeps getting better every time we open,” Danny said.

By attending the free Data2Dollars Two event, you too can take advantage of Suds’ expertise to accelerate your wash’s growth. Register today to secure your spot.
