Business Description

Well established tunnel carwash with gift shop and fuel, located near a high traffic intersection. This family-owned business was founded in 2000 at the same time as the adjacent quick lube and gas station with convenience store by the same owners. Real estate for the carwash and carwash business are for sale as a package.
The 6,840 square foot building has a 125-foot long tunnel carwash which has been well maintained since it was constructed in 2000. Parcel is 37,544 square feet with 125 foot street frontage. Owners recently upgraded equipment by the addition of a unit that cleans tires and wheels so well that hand labor is mostly eliminated. They replaced the chain and roller mechanism in November, 2019.
Fuel is a small part of revenues. Presently a major brand but can be changed. There is a two-chamber 20,000 gallon tank with 12,000 gallons for regular and 8,000 for supreme. There are two fuel dispensers with four nozzles and another two capped off dispenser installations for future expansion. Three grades of fuel are sold: regular, supreme and blended. Diesel is not sold.
Gift shop sells snacks, cards, gifts, clothing, picture frames and various merchandise. It has very nice improvements and provides a pleasant place for customers to wait while their vehicles are being washed.
