Buddy Bear Car Wash Now Open at Cicero Ave. Chicago

We recently completed an exciting new Tommy Wash project on Cicero Avenue in Chicago, near the Midway airport. The new wash, “Buddy Bear Car Wash”, is a renovation project done by owner Phil Degerato, who converted the facility from a dilapidated wash to a beautiful redone fully automated express wash with auto tellers and self loading transporter belt.

  • Self loading entrance.
  • DRB XPT auto teller system.
  • Tommy’s patented stainless steel round applicator arches.
  • Entrance display lights.

    I was wondering if Tommy Car Wash Systems entered into franchise deals. What I’m looking for is to own a car wash. However, I’m smart enough to know that doing it on my own will be way more work than entering into a franchise deal, and e, for layout, construction, activation, and marketing. Please advise if you allow franchise deals. Thanks, Essix White. I have an LLC, Livingston Operations Unlimited.

      Hello Essix,
      Our sister company, Tommy’s Express Car Wash, is franchising as we speak, with eight washes open and several more coming in the next few weeks (and many more after that). Information is available at tommys-express.com/franchise and there is a pre-approval form available on that same page. Please let us know if you have any questions.
