Prepping for a papal visit and more is covered in this month’s issue


Large special events take a lot of planning. Throw in a pope, approximately 2 million people descending on the host city and intense security procedures — the result could have easily been a logistical nightmare.

The owners of A Royal Flush, a portable restroom company serving the Northeast, won the coveted bid to provide service for the events surrounding the papal visit to Philadelphia last fall. This month’s On Location feature covers the planning and scheduling that went into providing over 3,000 restrooms for the event. It was quite a feat, but they managed to provide great service despite the huge crowds, long days and strict security measures.
