Don’s Johns Selected as 2016 Family-Owned Business Award Honoree from the Washington Business Journal

Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 9.54.30 AMFamily businesses like Don’s Johns are an often overlooked form of ownership, yet they are all around us and provide invaluable support to local economies like ours. That is why the Washington Business Journal is spotlighting the region’s best at the Family-Owned Business Awards this month. We are proud to announce we have been selected as an honoree for this award, which honors the top multi-generational, family-owned business in our region for overall excellence, innovation, ethics and philanthropy!

So what makes us one of the top family-owned businesses in the area? Here are just a few of the many reasons why:

  • Our History: Don’s Johns, Inc. was established in 1964 by Thelma and Don Rainwater as a small septic company. Their business was one of the first portable toilet companies in the nation and in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area. The first toilets were built of wood and constructed as quickly as the orders came in. Over the past 50 years, Don’s Johns has come a long way from the original wooden outhouse.
  • Present Day: Don’s Johns is still 100% family owned and has been passed down for three generations. Kristie Harrell, Chief Executive Officer, joined Don’s Johns full time in 1992. She is the granddaughter of founders Don and Thelma Rainwater and started helping at Don’s Johns from the age of 10 stuffing envelopes for billing.
  • Who We Serve: We are a proud supplier of sanitation services to the biggest names in sports, government and private industry in the Virginia, Maryland and Washington DC area.  Each year, we service hundreds of construction sites including the MGM site at National Harbor to emergency services throughout the region.
  • Philanthropic Involvement: Don’s Johns is a proud supporter and supplier of the Marine Corps Marathon, local volunteer fire departments, Willing Warriors and dozens of charity runs and events.

We are proud to have been one of the first temporary restroom companies on the East Coast. For more than 50 years, being family-owned has helped us live by our motto “Our People Make a Difference” because it means treating employees the same way we would treat family. We strive to be a leader in our industry with how employees are compensated, and look forward to many more years of regional success as the “go to” company for sanitation services!

Looking for a little luxury at your fall outdoor wedding? Find out how to plan for when nature calls.

Fall is one of the most popular times to have an outdoor wedding because of the cooler weather and beautiful colors in nature. But planning an outdoor fall wedding can be tricky – between knowing the right number of restroom facilities needed to keeping your guests warm – things can get complicated. With 50+ years of experience in the industry, we have some insider tips to help ensure all your guests’ needs are met and your wedding day goes off without a hitch.

1. Proper Restroom Facilities

Many outdoor wedding venues don’t offer a sufficient amount of restroom facilities for your guests, which forces guests to wait in long lines or walk a long way to the bathrooms. When guests are provided with adequate restroom facilities, they stay longer and have a better time. If you are planning on serving alcohol at your reception, it’s important that you increase the number of restrooms by 20%. If you know there are going to be a higher percentage of women in attendance (beyond 50%), increase the number of units by 25-50%. Additionally, it’s important always include at least one wheelchair accessible unit! For more guidance on choosing the correct number of restroom facilities check out our Event Planning Guide.

2. Upgrading from Standard to Luxurious

Almost as important as providing an adequate number of restroom facilities, is providing your guests with luxurious restroom trailers instead of standard units. Weddings should feel anything but standard and this simple switch is an easy way to wow your guests. The Don’s Johns’ luxury trailers come with amenities such as granite countertops, marble walls, shelving and climate-controlled heat and air. The trailers include a dual audio system that not only plays soothing music for visiting guests, but also ensures those waiting to use the restroom don’t miss any moments from your big day with three flat screen televisions. These trailers always give guests something to talk about!

3. Bathroom Décor

If you really want to get your guests talking, we suggest including a few subtle extras in the trailers such as, a bathroom essentials basket, monogrammed towels, fresh flowers or luxe soaps. Remembering small details like these create the finishing touches on a luxurious fall wedding. Guests will think they have transported from an outdoor venue to a five-star hotel!

Now that you know the industry tips to creating a luxurious outdoor wedding this fall, contact a Don’s Johns representative today for a free luxury restroom trailer quote. Let us help you with your special day!

You need to make sure you plan accordingly, so all your guests are comfortable.

Event Rental: Determine How Many Guests Will Attend

The Luxury Restroom Trailer w/ADA Room is perfect. It’s beautiful and features stunning Corian counters and hardwood flooring design. Its climate controlled and fully stocked as well.

Keep Your Customers Happy, Even During Business Remodeling

remodeling

Don’s Johns has been servicing the greater Washington, DC area for 50 years. As you may think of us as just a provider of portable restrooms for construction crews, concerts, weddings, and other special events, we also are here for our local businesses, even during remodeling.

If you’re working on a simple or complete remodeling project, you still have a business to run; you can’t just close your doors. Don’s Johns understands your pains of trying to keep happy customers, even during your business remodeling season. Here are three ways partnering with us helps you keep your customers happy during such a hectic and unorganized time.

Leaves the Impression Your Employees Practice Sanitary Habits

In most establishments, there are employee restrooms and separate customer restrooms. However, sometimes a place of business only has one. Your customers are going to notice the lack of restrooms for your staff, be it a food establishment or general retail store. Good hygiene and sanitary practices are expected nowadays. With germ spreading on the rise, a customer can’t help but notice and wonder if your employees are washing their hands throughout the day.

Help ease your customer’s mind and let them know that you have a clean restroom facility on site for your staff to use. This is also a great way to show the contractor and their crew you are looking out for their best interests as well. Don’s John’s restrooms each have hot and cold running water and ample amounts of soap. You’ll also find having a few hand sanitizers in your restaurant establishment for employees to use once they’ve left the restroom is comforting as well.

Don’t Lose Customers Because of a Lack of Restroom Facility

When your customers come out to shop and browse, they want to do so comfortably. However, having children with them could cut their trip short, if you are renovating the store and restroom area. Your customers may need to change their babies. Toddlers alert parents right then and there they have to use the restroom, not a moment sooner. Once your customer leaves your place of business, this opens the door for them to visit your competitor, with a clean restroom waiting for their use. The possibility of them walking back to pick up that item they were eyeing is drastically reduced.

Get the Portable Option to Meet the Needs of Your Customers

Make sure your customer needs are being met. Don’s Johns has a variety of standard portable restroom solutions as well as luxury restroom trailers that are ADA compliant. Each trailer is stocked with antibacterial soap to use with hot and cold running water, which is perfect to prevent the spread of germs during the cold season. The cool winter air prevents most from wanting to use a standard portable unit outdoors. However, our restroom trailers are a climate-controlled environment, for those side-walk sale shoppers to relieve themselves in comfort.

You can count on Don’s Johns to provide the portable restroom facilities your organization needs. We have plenty on hand and available for you to use for as long as you need.

How to Choose Between a Restroom Trailer and a Portable Toilet for Your Event

How to Choose Between a Restroom Trailer and a Portable Toilet for Your Event

You may have already read about how many porta potty’s you should have for your event in our Porta Potty Event Planning Guide. However, how do you determine which is best for your event: a restroom trailer versus a portable restroom? Let’s examine the benefits of both and other considerations to factor into your decision.

restroom trailer

Benefits of Restroom Trailers

A restroom trailer is one large unit which contains a few to many individual restroom stalls. You can rent a basic trailer to one of our most presidential functioning trailers. Trailers offer more space for your guests than an individual portable toilet unit does. Restroom trailers are a climate controlled environment.

Each Don’s Johns trailer come with dual audio sound systems and television screens to keep up with the outdoor engagements. You’ll also have large Corian or granite countertops, hardwood flooring, recessed lighting, hot and cold running water, and other beautiful amenities included. Restroom trailers are an excellent investment for large, formal events.

portable-restroom

Benefits of Portable Restroom

A portable restroom is a single unit meant for one person to use at a time. They also offer complete privacy, something individuals at certain gathers may appreciate more. If you are having a standard event or are budget conscious, portable toilets are a good way to go. You may also upgrade to Don’s Johns VIP Flushing Toilet with Sink.

How Long Will the Event Be For?

The first thing you want to consider is how long your event will be for. A one or two-day event is perfect for portable toilets. However, if you will be hosting an event for a few days, restroom trailers are an excellent choice. They have large holding tanks that do not need to be frequently changed.

Where is the Event Located and What Type of Guests Will Be Present?

Make sure to arrive at your event location and find out where you can set up your portable restroom or trailer units. That may determine which you can have on-site.

You’ll also want to factor in which your guest will appreciate more. An entire wedding party would not appreciate trying to squeeze into a single portable restroom to help each other dress for an outdoor wedding.

What are the Weather Expectations?

In addition to considering where your event will be, what is the weather expected to be like? If you are hosting an event outdoors, and there is a chance of rain, your guest will appreciate having a restroom trailer to retreat into. Guests can refresh themselves and hang out until the downpour is over if needed. If it’s extremely hot outside, you and your guests will appreciate being able to retreat to a burst of cool air.

What is Your Event’s Budget?

Don’s Johns has a variety of restroom trailers and portable restrooms. We have standard porta potty restrooms and you can upscale to our Luxury Presidential Restroom Trailer. You can be as fancy as you want. There is a unit for everyone though that can accommodate your needs and budget.

As you can see, there are a number of factors that affect your decision to rent a restroom trailer or a portable restroom. Contact our friendly representatives at 888-331-6323 today so we can find a unit to match your needs.

Facts about Portable Toilets

 

portable-toilets

They have many names, port-a-potty, porta potty, portable john, portable potties, portable sanitation units, restroom trailers, and the water closet. Either way you label them; portable toilets have been around for quite some time as a convenience for personal and business events. If you have any questions about portable toilets, here are a few answers.

When was the first portable toilet invented?

In the 1940’s, shipyard crewmembers needed a convenient method of using the restroom. It was a huge cost, as the laborers had to go back and forth from the ship to the dock to use the restroom. So, one of the managers had designed a wood cabana and holding tank placed on the dock, and the portable toilet began. George Harding did not patent it until 1962. PolyJohn Corporation and the age of portable toilets began thanks to cofounders George Harding, George Hiskes, and Ed Cooper.

How do you keep the smell down in a portable toilet?

Portable toilet systems are more than meets the eye. Depending on the length of use, you can have an entire Interior Restroom System consisting of a 100-gallon fresh water-holding tank and a 250 gallon secured waste container. This is an Odorless external system. The waste tank fits under the trailer.

A standard porta-potty has a 62-gallon wastewater-holding tank and plenty of ventilation. Many times, the company will use a combination of fragrance and a dark blue dye to mask the odor between cycling out the waste tanks.

How sanitary are portable toilets?

Portable toilets are now just as sanitary as a restaurant or hotel’s restroom. Some restroom trailers provide baby-changing stations. They have no toilets inside the room and are made of FDA-approved polyethylene, which resists bacterial growth. You will find a variety of toilets such as ADA complaint Wheelchair Accessible Restrooms and Luxury Restroom Trailers.

You’ll also find at events that valet services are available to ensure the restrooms are clean and well stocked with supplies. There are also plenty of other accessories to keep you clean such as hand sanitizers, Hand Wipes & Foam, Quad Wash Station, and Portable Sink with running hot and cold water.

Why would I rent a portable toilet rather than use the one at my business or at the park?

Portable toilets offer the convenience of no maintenance. You don’t worry about your sewer clogging. You have a dependable restroom system to use for any event. It’s a perfect way to ensure you have enough stalls for guests. Finally, some are transferable for mobile sites.

How Many Porta Potties Are Needed For Special Events

porta-pottiesIf you are planning a special event, it’s hard enough trying to get an accurate count of guests to determine how much food and beverages you will serve. You must know how many chairs and tables to set up. Possibly even how many party favors to have as well. You also should be sure you have enough porta potties on site from Don’s Johns.

You see, hosting events, you can expect your guests to enjoy the food and beverages, especially if it’s a warm day. Participants are having fun and are more sociable while drinking. What agitates guests at events is being uncomfortable, too hot, babies may need changing, or guests needing to wait in long lines or walk uncomfortable distances to the restroom. Here are a few suggestions to having happy guests stay at your event.

How many Porta Potties?

Don’s Johns Tips to Consider:

  • As long as you are having a headcount of fewer than 50 people, 2 portable restrooms are a great start to accommodate your guests.
  • If you have a 4-hour event on a hot day, having 3 DJ4000 Restroom Trailers provides a great air-conditioned environment for 100-250 guests to cool off.
  • The longer the event and more attendees, you want to increase your numbers. This allows guests to continue to drink and have a good time knowing they have access to the restroom
  • Remember, if you have more than 50% of your participants as women, you need to increase the number of units by at least 25%.

porta-potties-planning-chart

Women tend to check their makeup and to refresh themselves in groups, so you need a place that’s roomy enough and accommodating. The DJ5000LX Luxury Presidential Restroom Trailer has beautiful granite countertop and is spacious. This well-lit mirrored area is stocked with plenty of paper towels and clean hot and cold water. Guests can talk about the night’s events and lounge around. They can keep up with what is going on outdoors via 3 flat screen televisions and listen on the dual audio system.

You can also consider the DJ2300LH Luxury Restroom Trailer w/ADA Room, as these units are ADA compliant of which you should have a good 10% of all portable restrooms as one to accommodate disabled or senior guests.

Remember to keep all parties involved, having portable handwashing stations around will be helpful. They don’t have to go into the restrooms to have clean hands and enjoy their foods. Parents can use the hand wipes to keep children’s faces and hands clean as well.

As a woman-owned business, Don’s Johns understand all these needs. Contact us today and an advisor can personally assist you with the number of clean uncomfortable portable restrooms to have at your indoor or outdoor event.

With over 50 years of experience, we are here to help you every step of the way. You can also visit Don’s Johns today to find the perfect porta potties that’s fit your needs. Contact us today for a free quote or call us today at 888-331-6323. porta-potty-rental
