How to Make a Shoeshine Service Work for You

Posted on: May 19th, 2013 by Drew No Comments


In todays blog I am refering to office shoeshine in particular.  It can be hard enough to find a London shoeshine service as it is, once you have it, how can you make it work for your business?

The key is to make it as convenient as possible for employees to use, positioning the shoeshine service in the kitchen or breakout area and allowing the shoeshiner to approach desks is by far the best.  Intergrating it in this way expect 33% of staff to utilise the shoeshine service.

Some companies have security issues with office shoeshine service, in response to this our Sunshiners all have CRB checks, if that isn’t enough, then a position as close to the action as possible, where people can visit from outside the firewall.  The less travel the better, they are busy and often don’t have time to make a 10 minute walk. Using this format expect a 15 – 20% take up.

Now time to address another popular question, how much time should a visit take?  A shoeshine takes on average 8 minutes, for a company of 100 you would need 3 hours with total access with none 3 and a half.

I hope this makes things a little clearer, I will cover other areas in future blogs or you can email or phone me, I’ll happy to assist!

Gazing at the doughnuts sitting in perspex cases, the silk ties shimmering from boutique windows. I knew I had to write. My thoughts escaped to the City. 20 minutes away on the tube, […]
