    Fundamental facts that are directly related to DETAILS and PRESENTATION

    •  What customers see first makes a big impression.
    •  A customer’s experience creates long-lasting memories.
    •  If KAR TEAM MEMBERS can succeed at making both of these situations positive, there is a strong chance that the customer will return (78% of dance studios that compete at KAR are repeat customers). WAY TO GO TEAM KAR!!
