The America’s Best Cleaners Power Breakfast took place on 21 June during Clean Show at the famed Brennan’s Restaurant in New Orleans. There were over 50 America’s Best Cleaners Affiliate owners and leaders in attendance at the show and each of them benefitted greatly from the training and preparation provided to them by the ABC organisation.
America’s Best Cleaners is a certification agency and an industry leading team of consultants who assist owners, managers, and team members to realize their full potential while striving for continued personal and professional success.
ABC affiliates were able to strengthen their bonds over the course of several hours, serving as a way to chart personal and professional growth and build morale during the show.
“There was no better way to tour the Clean Show than with the guidance of ABC,” said Tim Wiseman of Mulberrys Garment Care. “Their planned events and presentations provided great opportunities to network. As a result of the in-depth information I received at each scheduled presentation I felt confident when making my equipment purchases for our company.”
Raj Manan of Tower Cleaners said: “As a first-time attendee to the Clean Show, having pre-show information really helped me prepare for what to expect and how to get the most value from our time investment.”
Robin Kramer of Jones Cleaning Centres said: “I found it to be very valuable and interesting to visit manufacturers with a group like America’s Best Cleaners. I’m proud to be one of them.”
Six weeks prior to the Clean Show, ABC provided its affiliates with invaluable webinars, coaching calls, and a user-friendly planning guide, so each team would be able to maximise the value of their show visit. The training included networking mapping and planning, a comprehensive outlining of new and unique products, holistic marketing messaging and communication and social campaigning at the event.
ABC assigned specific themes to each day at Clean and had prescheduled ABC-only group events with their partner vendors. Extensive recapping and support will continue after the Clean Show.
Catherine McCann, ABC Partner, said: “We hope our affiliates will grow established relationships with vendors and peers, focus on expanding their contact networks, be open to new ideas in automation, and to broaden their service offering by finding new and unique products and services.”
Christopher White, ABC Partner and executive director said: “Catherine and I always look to Clean as a keystone event to aid our affiliates in meeting their planned goals and as a pivot point to look to new opportunities and revenue channels. No other event allows us to provide a one-stop shop for decision making and retooling.”
America’s Best Cleaners thanked Ryan Luetzow of Leutzow Industries and Dr. Stephen Travers and Richard Fitzpatrick of Kreussler for their support and programming contributions at the Affiliate Power Breakfast, and also thanked Select Risk, BeCreative360, and Sankosha for their continued support of the ABC affiliation.
