    Soapy Suds Car Wash is one of the many family-owned businesses in Valencia, CA. Initially started by his father twelve years ago, Soapy Suds Car Wash is now operated by Armen Zargarian, who helped his father with the family business when he was in school, but never imagined being in the position hes in now. My father built a strong foundation for the business and left it up to me to continue building towards the success we have finally achieved. Soapy Suds is definitely different from our competitors because we are hands-on as owners, says Zargarian. Customer service has always been the foundation of success at Soapy Suds Car Wash. We make sure we greet our customers when they enter our facility and follow up with them after their vehicle is done to ensure their standards have been met. Soapy Suds Car Wash also offers a wide variety of services their competitors don't offer, for example, servicing motorhomes, boats, RVs, and trailers. In addition, they repair windshields on-site and offer some mechanical and body work through third party partnerships. Zagarian and the employees at Soapy Suds, consider it a true blessing to be able to give back to a community who has helped us achieve our goals. Whether it's donating to a local organization or creating a custom fundraiser for a high school, we always look forward to spreading the love and promoting our business. Outside of what we typically to do give back to the community we offer different incentives for veterans, senior citizens or government employees. The customers at Soapy Suds truly #LoveLocal. We used to have the traditional punch card and it reaches a point to where customers no longer cared about receiving one. I would hear them say oh no I don't need another card in my purse or oh no I will probably end up losing it;. This was proof we needed a change and FiveStars was the answer. People love taking advantage of any offer we send their way! says Zargarian. Zargarian loves FiveStars because it helped our business grow and give back to the community in ways we couldn't imagine with a standard loyalty program. We offer our customers double points, free incentives or the ability to share discounts and rewards. It keeps our customers happy and motivated to promote our establishment between friends and family. There is no better gift than giving and at Soapy Suds we consider ourselves blessed to be in business and have the reputation we do. In return, we thank our customers by giving back to the community and this allows us to keep growing and building relationships. A fun fact about Armen is that he enjoys any adrenaline-activity that gets his heart pumping. I love to go off roading, dirt biking, and spending time with my family. That always comes first before the crazy activities. Thank you, Armen! #SoapySudsCarWash #Valencia #smallbusiness #shoplocal #shopsmall

    If you ever want to do something out of the ordinary, Shannon Loomis, owner of Kiln Creations, offers a fun and creative Paint-Your-Own Pottery and Mosaic, in her Noblesville, Indiana studio. Kiln Creations is a unique environment where adults and children can relax, create, and spend quality time together. Shannon tries to keep it a stress free zone for customers and make each visit as smooth as possible. Its meaningful for customers to have a functional piece of pottery that they can remember and the time they spent together. You cant say that about [other activities, like] a movie, bounce house, or bowling, Loomis says. For Loomis, giving back to her community is important, which is why she is a proud supporter of the #LoveLocal movement as a business owner and as a citizen. She does what she can to help out with local events and help bring people to the small downtown area, which she says is made up of amazing local shops and restaurants. She also spends much of her free time coaching and volunteering for her county Special Olympics program. As a business owner, Loomis uses FiveStars to build a feeling of community, and show her customers appreciation. She loves how its easy to track points so she can reward her loyal customers. What are her customers favorite reward? Loomis enjoys telling people when they spend $100, they get $5 back on their next visit, an incentive that motivates many of her customers. As a small business owner, Loomis faces many of the challenges that other owners may run into. Most business owners would agree that staffing and managing employees is one of the biggest challenges. I am really lucky and currently have an amazing staff, but that always hasn't been the case, so I don't take it for granted for a minute, she says. Another challenge that I personally have is turning it off. When you have your own business and enjoy what you do, it can easily suck up all your time and you realize you are working day and night. I try to make sure that I take a day off and take time for myself and relax. To celebrate success with her employees and leaders, Loomis took my staff to dinner at a local restaurant to celebrate making it through our busy and successful summer. It was great to relax and chat with them about non-work things. I also love leaving them fun notes and gift cards to let them know that their hard work is appreciated. Thank you Shannon!
