Happy New Year! From the single shop operator to multi shop franchises, January is exciting for everyone. The beginning of a New Year is a chance to start with a clean slate. Many of us have set new goals for this year. I want to wish you the best in achieving them.
Take a minute to look at the Fast Lube Programs Guide starting on pg. 14. The industry leaders featured in this year’s guide have methods to help you achieve your goals. Take a look and see who’s offering what.
Bill Lynot has some very practical ideas on how to bulletproof your bottom line on pg. 30. Since I am sure somewhere in your goals for 2016 is increasing your profits, this will be a good read for you. As we begin another year, we asked fast lube operators what issues they foresee in the New Year. We compiled everything in our annual Vertical Outlook on pg. 46.
We’ve come through a lot together through the years. I can’t think of a better group of people to work with then those in our industry. Cheers to 2016 and cheers to you!
