We had the good fortune of connecting with Nicki & Mathew Deines and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Nicki & Mathew, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?

Starting Loos of Luxury didn’t come to us as naturally as some would think. We have owned and operated of a local septic pumping company since 2018. Expanding into a related business makes sense. However, it wasn’t until 2021 that we realized the need to enter the upscale portable restroom market.

The pandemic had a huge impact on weddings and large events! For many, these events were sadly cancelled or postponed. For others, rather than cancel these once-in-a-life-time celebrations, they shifted their venues to private estates, backyards, or wide-open fields. So creative! One challenge, though! Can the existing restroom facilities handle many guests? Are there even restrooms available? What if the venue is on septic? Taking note that this was a challenge, we recommended that our septic customers rent a nicer alternative to standard porta-potties – upscale restroom trailers. Several times our customers came back to us, unable to find availability. Ding! Light bulb moment!

We give God the credit for leading us to establish Loos of Luxury and bringing the right people into our lives to make it happen! From the day we founded Loos of Luxury to our first event was 6 weeks! Now we are 10 months in and are up to 3 luxury restroom trailers. What a blessing to be busy!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?

Loos of Luxury provides upscale restroom trailers for private events, weddings, corporate events, parties, and emergency services. You will find that our portable restrooms are expertly designed, tastefully decorated, and have spacious, well thought out floor plans. We even provide a courtesy table with linen and decor to cover the wheel well. The highest quality materials and finishing touches mean you and your guests will have a comfortable and clean restroom experience. This attention to detail is what sets us apart.

A benefit of our new endeavor is we get to interact with the happiest people, celebrating special occasions. It feels great to be a part of those moments!

Some unexpected things we’ve learned along the way:

1. Having a luxury restroom trailer at your event keeps guests completely out of your home.
2. Our luxury trailers have A/C and music! Some guests hang out in our restroom because it’s cool.
3. Many people are surprised that upscale restroom rentals even exist.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
A charter on the Triton Catamaran would be priority number 1! The views of the city from the bay are stunning! Other must visits would be Coronado, Little Italy, Moon Light beach in Encinitas, and the boardwalk in Mission Beach. (I guess we like the beach.) Top places to eat would be Tom Ham’s Light House, Vintana’s at the Lexus dealership, and Breakfast Republic in Ocean Beach. Paddle boarding in Mission Bay and Oceanside Harbor are favorite spots of ours, too. Don’t forget to stop by OB Noodle House for a taste of the “original” Skrewball Whiskey!
