    Rude customers

    Good for here. Agree completely. There is no reason to be rude. My wife and I both own businesses. We learned long ago some people just arent worth it. The customer is always right, except when they aren't!

    Help me pick out a new wrap

    Agree with the bottom also, like that it ties the cab and box together. Others look like logo on cab was an afterthought. Not just in your designs but in others i have seen as well.

Stay away from chain restaurants, go to your local owned restaurants and hit them up, try to get them to clean on regular schedule. Mine range from every 2 weeks to every 3 mos depending...

    How much $$$ per hour

    We try to gross about $100 hr of on job time. That being said sometimes it's higher sometimes lower. Quality comes first. If have to spend more time scrubbing or spotting than anticipated our hourly goes down but the customer still gets the best quality.
