above our budget. A month later the agent came back to us and whether we would be interested if they dropped the rent and fixed it up so we did the numbers. After speaking with Daniel from Spencer Systems and Glen from Glenn’s Laundry Maintenance we were able to make the dream a reality. “We began building the facility and the showroom and on Sunday, 11 September 2016, we officially opened the Training School which was attended by: • The Drycleaning Institute of Australia • Laundry Association Australia • National Drycleaner and Launderer magazine • Lake Macquarie Business Chamber • Along with owners and operators of laundromats and drycleaners and industry suppliers. “To help pay the rent we also simultaneously opened a wedding gown cleaning business. This has been exciting and we have joined Association of Wedding Gown Specialists (US). “Our latest venture was the wrap around painting of a local bus to advertise that business – you can’t miss us. Reaction to this advertising has been amazing. Kerryn also excels at social media! “We extend our sincere thanks to those who helped make this training facility happen - our staff, Spencer Systems, Glenn’s Laundry Maintenance and Anthony Kingsley from FilterFab - without their help and guidance and love of our industry this would never have been achieved.
