RAINY DAYS and SUNDAYS - Don’t Always Have to Get You Down
Published on 1/31/2018
You’ve heard of “Rainy Days and Mondays,” but WEST MAIN AUTO SPA owners Mike and Rhonda Blankenship have a story to tell concerning “Rainy Days and Sundays."
Mike Blankenship learned about AUTEC by researching car wash manufacturers on a rainy Sunday morning after church. He couldn’t go out on his boat so he began researching car washes and found AUTEC CAR WASH SYSTEMS showing up on multiple internet searches. North Carolina’s AUTEC was reasonably local to his Salem, Virginia location. This was ideal in that he prefers to buy locally whenever he can. So, Monday rolls around and Blankenship called AUTEC to speak to someone in sales. Momentarily, Tom Hobby, AUTEC's president, returned the call, which lasted for almost two hours. Blankenship commented about how refreshing it was to receive a phone call from the president of the company.
From Blankenship’s initial phone conversation with Hobby to the eventual installation of his EV-1 Evolution car wash system at his West Main Auto Spa site, it has evolved into a wonderful and successful collaboration. Blankenship describes AUTEC as a “top notch group” and is appreciative of their involvement in his wash and all the help that they have provided from its beginning to the present.
The car wash totals after only being open for business a few days have been extremely impressive. Blankenship stated, “the site washed 227 vehicles yesterday and was still washing cars at 10 o'clock last night!” Given Salem, Virginia's population of 25,000, the numbers continue to astound and impress.
So, remember that success and success stories can evolve from “Rainy Days and Mondays," or "Sundays," as the case may be.
From a rainy day in August to a snowy, opening day in January, West Main Auto Spa is off to a great start with their success story.
