SAN FRANCISCO — Independent consulting services firm Methods For Management (MFM) hosted a breakfast on June 7, at Bally’s Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas strip during the Clean Show convention, for its members and friends, the company writes.

The firm’s “show review” breakfast hosted keynote speaker Tim Burke, editor, American Drycleaner who provided his perspective on the industry from an industry publication’s point of view.
