The effectiveness of a car wash’s chemistry determines the performance of the wash equipment and the quality of the end wash provided to customers. Understanding this chemistry, the function of the products in use, and the various factors that influence this function is key for proper car wash performance—as is partnership and service from a reputable chemical vendor.
Many factors contribute to running a successful car wash. The quality of your equipment, a great location, effective marketing strategies… all play a part. But in the midst of all these financial or physical investments, it’s important that car wash operators don’t neglect one one of their greatest resources: their employees.
There’s no way to be completely prepared when you launch a business – and that goes double for the high-tech, fast paced world of an automatic car wash. There will be rough spots, confusion, scheduling problems, glitches in the equipment, and operators will have to scramble to stay on top of things. Fortunately for first time car wash owners and operators, Tommy University offers an affordable on-site startup coach service to make sure that even with inevitable hiccups your opening is overwhelmingly successful.
Tommy University invites current or upcoming car wash owners to come to Western Michigan and participate in a unique collaborative training program designed to take individuals with a beginner knowledge of real world car wash operations and transform them into true car wash experts, able to handle the day-to-day ins and outs of car wash management from the first minute the car wash is open.

1. Group Buying Power
Tommy Car Wash Systems works directly with car wash equipment manufacturers to buy significant amounts of equipment, and we use that buying power to negotiate with vendors and bring prices down. This group negotiating power works for everyone, giving our vendors bigger sales, bringing down our own prices, and allowing Tommy to offer lower prices for our clients.
