Our Orange Co/Inland Empire Chapter meeting was hosted by Routley Enterprises in Costa Mesa, CA in Demember. Jessica Ferrante, the owner of Routley Enterprises went all out to provide a great atmosphere for our group. Her store was well stocked with everything you could imagine for your business, not to mention the special discounts that she provides to all of the CFI members. It was really a great atmosphere to expand on the topic of the evening, “up-sales.”

Our guest speaker of the evening was Jessika James from Prochem. Jessika came with a whole bag loaded full of great ideas to improve your sales. The members really got into the meeting and the ideas starting coming out of everywhere. We could not believe all the potential income we were leaving at the door. Most of the ideas included the tools and chemicals that we already have. I’m sure Routley Enterprises appreciated the sales support they were receiving from Jessika. Thanks you Jessika James for all your great help!

Our host kept the energy levels up serving an “eat while we network” dinner from Subway. The meeting ended about 8:45 but many members were so wired up that they hung out in the parking lot for at least another hour sharing more ideas. This is what networking and being a CFI member really is all about.

So when and where is the next get together? There will be a Spot Dye and Area Rug Repair Class on February 11 in Sacramento, CA with Melody David from The Dyers Guild. For more information, call 800-Carpet9 (227-7389)

The CFI would like to congratulate ICS magazine for 50 great years of helping the carpet and restoration industry with all the up-to-date information on the industry and new products. Happy Anniversary!
