CWONJ Meeting Highlights the POS, Honors Washes and John Criscuolo Sr.

ISELIN, NJ — The Car Wash Operators of New Jersey (CWONJ) met
November 10 at the Hotel Woodbridge here for its annual Fall
Membership Meeting. The event, which attracted nearly 50, included a
panel discussion on “How Your POS Can Make You More Money,”
according to CWONJ President Mike Conte, who also moderated the
event. “We had three great presenters who really know their stuff,”
said Conte. “Our members walked away with a lot of good information
that will help them increase their bottom line.”
Innovative Control Systems’ Brian Bath, Micrologic’s Miguel Gonzalez
and DRB Systems’ Todd Davy spent an hour discussing everything
from how a POS can save on labor costs, to how its features can help
to better market the wash, in addition to much more.
Prior to the panel discussion two washes were honored with the
association’s first Carwash of the Year Awards. Recipients of the honor
were Rt. 130 Car Wash & Express Lube owned by Chris Vernon and 33
East Car Wash of Ocean owned by Jack Aaronson. Aaronson’s son
Chad accepted the award on his father’s behalf.
The evening ended with a special Lifetime Achievement Award
bestowed upon John Criscuolo Sr. of AE Styles Manufacturing.
Criscuolo, who has been in the industry for 53 years, was praised for
tireless dedication to the industry in New Jersey and his innovative
products that have impacted carwashing. Mike Conte read a special
and heartfelt history of his storied career before presenting the World
War II Veteran with the honor.
