Santa Fe Springs, Calif.— Van Merrill, of North Tustin, Calif., recently joined Continental Girbau West (CG West) as vice-president of vended laundry development and sales. Merrill, who is charged with managing vended laundry development and sales, holds 27 years experience in vended laundry ownership, development, management, marketing and sales. He also holds particular expertise in lease negotiations

After years of working closely with Continental Girbau – as a distributor and vended laundry consultant – he formally joined the Continental Girbau West team, according to Mike Floyd, Continental president. “Van is a talented developer of profitable vended laundries,” he said. “We’ll look to him to provide expertise, management and guidance. He excels at finding vended laundry locations and developing those laundries to their fullest profit potential.”

Boasting a successful career in the vended laundry industry, Merrill most recently provided consulting services to coin laundry investors. Prior to that time, he co-owned Sparklean Laundry Systems, a Continental distributorship, for eight years. Since launching his career, Merrill has developed more than 100 vended laundries.

“I’m really excited to work with the CG West team,” said Merrill. “I feel Continental is by far and away the best laundry equipment manufacturer, with the best people, in the industry. I enjoy helping people realize their dreams of owning their own businesses.”

Merrill holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Miami.
