Today we’re highlighting Ryan Essenburg’s recent presentation “Fundamentals of Express Car Wash Success… Blue Ocean Vs. Red Ocean Site Selection.” This session was originally presented to an overflow crowd at The Car Wash Show 2018 in Las Vegas, NV. Ryan Essenburg serves as the president of Tommy Car Wash Systems.
The session will be held Thursday, April 26 from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m in the Las Vegas Convention Center. All attendees are also formally invited to visit the Tommy Car Wash Systems exhibit during regular show hours. We’ll be highlighting the new WASH CLUB Licence plate Reader setup, Easy-Chem Car Wash Solutions System, and our original equipment and building designs.
The people of the United Arab Emirates, who have built the tallest building in the world and some of the most magnificent creations on the planet, who import nearly everything from a global marketplace, have been unable to import professional car washing. In the United States we place conveniently located tunnel car washes at a rate of around 1 tunnel car wash location for every 20,000 vehicles. In Dubai there are a mere handful of car washes serving a city of millions who thrive on vehicle pride. So why such a failure in Dubai? How can it be that a city with so much figured out could fall so short in one category?
Spring offers a particular challenge for many car washes. While winter is generally the busiest season by percent of sales, spring often brings record-breaking days as consumers react to the warmer temperatures and clear skies by heading out to have the car washed. One day a wash may be bumper to bumper with eager customers, and the next heavy rains and cold temperatures drive them away leaving wash employees with little to do but listen to the radio.
The Tommy’s Express Car Wash Franchise, proudly powered by Tommy Car Wash Systems, is pleased to announce that as of February 2018, fifty five Tommy’s Express franchise locations are under contract around the United States, with an additional international site planned for Saudi Arabia.
The Totally Tommy site model continues to realize its potential in the field. Quality Car Wash of Holland, MI and Tommy Car Wash Systems are pleased to announce that during the 2017 calendar year the combination carwash, gas station, and convenience store located at Waverly Road and Chicago Drive in Holland Michigan washed a record 515,367 vehicles – an astonishing achievement for the two year old facility which serves as a template for the expanding Tommy’s Express franchise.
