MEMPHIS, Tenn.

There will be big improvements made by Car Wash USA Express to its new location, according to the Memphis Business Journal.

A tunnel will be put built in the location, which is a staple of the Car Wash USA brand. 

The wash is anticipating 8,000 cars a month, which is 3,000 more than Simoniz, the previous owner of the land did.

The company usually buys carwashes with 1.4 acres of space, but the new location will be over 2 acres. The wash will have nearly $2 million put into it by Car Wash USA.

Employees will be trained at the Car Wash USA training facility. COO Kerry Sewell, said in the story that the business will open more locations this year as well. “There are only a few markets that are underserved and we want to find those to make sure we take care of them,” she said in the story.

SCUNTHORPE, England

A new hand wash will be opening soon in England, according to the Scunthorpe Telegraph.

TUCSON, Ariz. and ROCHESTER, Minn.

Mister Car Wash has acquired two locations in Tucson and Rochester, Minn., according to a press release.

Mister now has eight locations in the Tucson area, and three locations in the Rochester market.

“We are excited about providing additional locations in Tucson and Minnesota further expanding our footprint in these key markets,” Mister Wash Chairman Ron Peterson said in the press release.

The company now owns a total of 128 carwashes.

BAGHDAD, Iraq

The United States Embassy in Iraq will be the location for the first CamelRack, according to a press release.

The machine is designed by Riveer to be semi-permanent, and uses a closed-loop system that recycles wash water “for indefinite periods of time without intervention,” according to the release.

Washing a car by hand uses an estimated 160 gallons of water, and the CamelRack reduces that amount by 95 percent.

“There is an increasing demand for closed-loop car washes as issues regarding fresh water, ground water pollution and the spread of noxious weeds gain more attention,” President of Riveer, Matt Petter, stated in the press release. “The needs of the U.S. Embassy in Iraq are really no different than an equipment company in Arizona in that the objective is to wash vehicles on site in a harsh environment while conserving water.”

Riveer was founded in 1983, and designs environmentally friendly wash equipment for military, industrial and commercial use.

SPRING LAKE PARK, Minn.
