Milestone: Sudsies expanded to a new headquarters at 12711 Biscayne Blvd in North Miami, enlarging its processing operation. Sudsies has kept its original location, at 6786 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, as a retail operation for its clients.

Key to success: “It’s all about your team. If you have a great team, you can exceed your customers’ expectations,” said President Jason Loeb, who is immediate past chairman of the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce. “Relationship building differentiates yourself in the marketplace.”

Strategy for next step: With a current fleet of 17 delivery vehicles, Sudsies expects to add a few more vehicles each year and hit 30 vehicles in a few years.
