I Plan to Have Luxury Restroom Trailers in DC for Every Event I Host

Dear Don’s Johns,

As a newbie event planner, I can tell you all sorts of horror stories. But none are as worse or embarrassing as the graduation event I threw. A bunch of parents from a private high school decided they wanted to throw one large graduation party since many families were so close. This was a huge event because families had their relatives and friends coming from out of town to this event. If I made a great impression here, other opportunities would open to me, such as:

  • Proms
  • Weddings
  • Anniversary parties
  • Retirement parties
  • Reunions

Being such a large scaled events, we held it outside. The weather was excellent. I had a summer theme with plenty of finger foods for the appetizers so the guests could mingle around. I coordinated with a local culinary school as many of the students from this school had an interest in culinary schools. Although it was an event for the graduates, we did use the on-site bar. We had plenty of entertainment also, which I knew would keep the party attendees engaged and stay all night.

To my surprise, I let one important amenity slip through my fingers. I saw a long line forming near the entryway to the cultural center. The entire event was outside so I went to investigate as to what was going on. Well, everyone was lined up for the restrooms! As I approached, I heard a few people state they were going to have to leave early because their children could not hold it. Some people had a lot to drink and waiting in line all night was not the way they wanted to celebrate their loved ones big night.

One of the parents pulled me aside and asked me where the next nearest restroom was. I had no idea. Another parent pulled me aside and gave me the number to Don’s Johns. I told her I wasn’t too sure that blue portable potties were what this event needed. She said they had luxury restroom trailers in DC. I never thought that would be something affordable, but I gave them a call.

Not long after, I was on the phone with a Don’s Johns specialist explaining the luxury restroom trailers in DC they offered. Talk about a lifesaver! Soon, they had the DJ5000L Luxury Restroom Trailer set up with a valet attendant. The inside of the restrooms were beautiful corian counters and hardwood flooring. There were three stalls for the women and two stalls for the men. The restroom lines were dramatically cut, and people stopped trying to leave because of this. I decided to order a few hand wipes & foam stations as well.

I now know to always make an early call to get at least one of the luxury restroom trailers in DC booked for my next event.

THANK YOU!
