Episode Topic: Carwash Operational Efficiency

Episode Description:

In this episode we interview David Begin and Henry Lopez discuss the topic of Operational Efficiency in a car wash operation. How do you manage all of the tasks and projects that need to be completed in order to minimize downtime at your carwash? David and Henry share their knowledge and experience applying systems, including checklists and other tools, to drive efficiency in a carwash business.

Show Notes:

  • It can be overwhelming when you first start to identify all of the tasks and projects you need to manage at a car wash business.
  • How do you get things done at your wash? Points to consider include: What needs to be done? Who needs to do it? How does it need to be done? When does it have to be done? Why does it need to be done?
  • How do you monitor if a task or project gets completed? How do you create an environment where this is the standard.
  • David and Henry discuss the different type of tasks and projects that are typical in a car wash environment, including Preventative Maintenance, Repairs, Upgrades, Cleaning & General Maintenance,
  • They also explain how we can apply Systems to help us execute consistently on these operational tasks. A “system” may include manual or paper-based systems (i.e. checklists, tasks lists, schedules), or software tools that support the process.
