City to get high-end carwash and c-store

July 28, 2009

PEPPER PIKET, OH — Plans for this $5 million tunnel wash and 2,100-square-foot convenience store/gas station went back and forth a bit with the city council, but they have finally been approved, the Chagrin Herald Sun reported.

The July 23 story said the carwash and c-store, from Waterway Gas & Wash, will replace a BP gas station. Waterway is among the largest conveyor carwash chains in the nation.

The business, which plans for 200 carwashes a day, should be complete in six months and will include a water reclamation system.

The city originally had concerns about the traffic it would cause. Mayor Bruce Akers said he got positive reviews from mayors in St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver and Cleveland, about other Waterway Gas & Washes.

City traffic engineers said the number of customers expected for the business “would not significantly impact the overall flow,” the story said.
