To build a “scalable” business we must have the right foundation of redundancies and CORE Team in place, but this doesn’t need to be complicated.

Watch and learn as our leadership team and drivers intake the days bounty of laundry from Cincinnati, Ohio. Yes, in the beginning there’s not much to this, but, as you scale, there’s an art to intake and assigning the orders to your team based on their strengths, weaknesses, and availability. 

Also learn how our strategic “Ownership of the Order” process is one of our secret weapons and how we train, implement, and hold our processors accountable to high standards.

Lastly, in this advanced session learn what are reasonable speeds for a processor, how soon to expect a high level of production and the delicate balance of onboarding and training a new processor.  

Session 4: The Art of Repeatable Folding & Packaging       

Folding and bagging laundry isn’t difficult to do if you know how and have experience. Doing it quickly also isn’t difficult to do if quality isn’t a top priority. What is difficult is to accomplish a high-quality control, in an efficient manner and with highly repeatable consistency.

You’ll LOVE this hands-on session taught by our Rockstar General Manager of 10 years, Marlene Adams, and her Asst GM, Carrie Hughes.
