Business Coach linked up AnnRita with Samuel Muraya, the founder of Friends Car Wash on Dennis Pritt Road to offer tips on how to scale up her business. Here is some of the advice that Muraya shared: 1. Have a good relationship with your suppliers The car wash business is water reliant.

In order to maintain and grow your clientele, find a differentiator that will attract loyalty to your business. This could be through offering value addition such as a WiFi network and beauty parlour services to keep your client engaged while their car is washed. 3. Train your team for efficiency A car wash is prone to wastage, more so water and electricity which are the main components of the business. To reduce the cost of operations, train your team on proper management of the key resources. The Business Coach airs on KTN Home every Monday at 7.30pm. You can catch up on past episodes on YouTube.
