Running a Car Wash

Running a car washIs running a car wash different than operations?  We say yes, it is. While operations covers everything to do with your business, including HR, Marketing and Public Relations,  RUNNING a car wash on a daily basis can be much more specific.  How will you control chemical costs? What should your labor percentage be? How do you set track speed?  You will have damage claims; are they legitimate and how can you tell?  Do you have a parts inventory? It would be a terrible thing to be shut down on an 800 car day because you do not have a $400 part on hand.
