“When I got the call that we got the Super Bowl I nearly passed out,” said Lana Garcia, the manager of Jimmy’s Johnnys Inc. “I don’t think anything can top the Super Bowl.”
Lana received the call in November that Jimmy’s Johnnys would be the sole supplier of portable toilets for the 2018 Super Bowl LII. The choice came down to them and a few other companies. Then after a phone interview, price exchange, and careful consideration, they were selected!
“We are probably one of the smaller companies, so we thought there’s no way! We’re going up against the giants in Minnesota,” said Lana.
Jimmy’s Johnnys is excited to take this opportunity. This is a great way to get their name out during a world-renowned event.
“We’re just really excited to finally have Jimmy’s Johnnys name on the map here in Minnesota,” she said.
Jimmy’s Johnnys Inc. Prepares for the Super Bowl LII
The Super Bowl LII will be held February 4, 2018 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Jimmy’s Johnnys can’t wait to work the event, and they’re hoping to get the chance to cheer for their home team as well.
“Now that our Minnesota Vikings are hopefully bringin’ it home, it’s even more exciting,” she said. “It’s the year of the underdogs.”
A lot of preparation goes into any portable toilet job, including customer management, scheduling, route management, invoicing, and more.
The Super Bowl is approaching quickly and the company is ready to go. To prepare, Lana ordered a bunch of brand new units to ensure everything will be up to par.
“We usually buy new units in the beginning of the season in June, but we bumped that up so we could get them cleaned and ready to go,” she said.
Jimmy’s Johnnys will be supplying 300+ portable toilets, and that number could grow. They will also supply executive restroom trailers, attendants, water tanks, and other products.
Advice to Other Portable Toilet Companies
“I always say, never think that you’re too small because you’re only as big as you let yourself be,” she said. “Even small companies can handle something of this capacity. Sometimes they even do it better because it’s not ‘just another job’ to us.”
Lana explained that small businesses are generally known for their personal, family-oriented way of doing things. This means always putting in extra effort to ensure everything gets done the right way. The services they provide aren’t just another job — it means so much more to them. They truly care!
It also helps that the portable toilet industry is like no other.
“This industry is such a supportive industry,” she said. “I’ve been in this industry for over 15 years and have worked with three different companies, but this has been the best and most supportive team I’ve been with.”
