Car Wash Industry’s Next Big Development

I have never before been so excited about the state of our industry and state of our company. We are cresting on a wave of game-changing technology that will forever change the car wash industry.

I am writing this from 30,000 ft on southwest airlines on my iPad, pretty cool, but not as cool as what’s going to happen in carwashing in the next 5 years. The foundations have been laid for nationwide success as thousands of people are going to ride a five year wave from mom and pop carwashing to 50 store chains in every market.Lower development costs, lower operating costs, more revenue generating services, and duplicatable success stories are already making it happen.

Now is the time to go big or go home. The markets are now more wide open than I have ever seen, and virtually every market in the country is craving high-end washes. Yes there are areas that are over saturated, but in my travels I see 5 markets that have no good car washes (at least not ones doing it right) for every 1 that is. I honestly believe more money will be made in the car wash business in the next 5 years than ever before, and the best part is that we’re already seeing it start.

Look forward to several very good years to come.
