ST. JOSEPH, Mich. — Attendees of a recent Maytag University Factory Commercial Laundry Sales School received in-depth, hands-on training of the company’s multi-segment product portfolio. In addition, education sessions delved into the company’s energy calculators, financing options and market discussions specific to the on-premise, coin, and multi-housing and segments.
“Whether you’re new to the business or a veteran, our sales school is designed to arm you with the necessary knowledge to compete in the marketplace,” says Rex Braden, national sales manager at Maytag® Commercial Laundry. “The sales school combines selling information into a collaborative and educational setting.”
The 16 attendees representing Canada and the United States toured a local hospitality facility, explored Maytag’s state-of-the-art testing lab, and compared competitor offerings.
“We learned about what works and what doesn’t work when selling commercial laundry equipment and route services,” says attendee Kellie Blumberg, president and owner of Texas Coin and Commercial Laundry. “This experience will help me close even more sales.”
“We provide our distributors with the competitive advantages of Maytag® Commercial Laundry equipment, as well as the latest industry information,” Braden explains. “Attendees have the knowledge necessary to best support their customers and close sales.”
