Joe Dan Reed, winner of Speed Queen's 2014 "My Success Story"
essay contest, recently discussed the prize and honor in an online
PlanetLaundry article. Last September, Reed was awarded
$100,000 for his essay in which he described unique ways he retains
and attracts customers to his eight Splash 'Em Out Laundromats
based in Lexington, Kentucky. Since winning the contest and paying
off a portion of his loan acquired through Speed Queen Financial
Services, Reed has been able to dedicate more funds toward various
marketing programs including direct mailings and
"I'm always thinking about what I can do to make the brand
better-to make people continue to choose my stores over
competitors," he says. "What I do know is Splash 'Em Out would not
have grown from one to eight stores without the support of our
dedicated employees, a knowledgeable distributor and a manufacturer
that understands our unique equipment and financial needs."
