MIAMI GARDENS, FL
The $2 million carwash and company headquarters will be constructed on a one-acre site, offering exterior express washes and free vacuums.
The family owned and operated facility is expected to be fully operational by May 2006, and will be the first $3 exterior express carwash in South Florida.
Mark Cordova will own and operate the 3,000-square-foot retail center, which will house the Lickety-Split Car Wash with four self-serve carwash bays and two automatic carwash bays and the DAZBOG coffeehouse, which will include a double drive-through and a walk-in patio.
Cordova is just one of the many wash operators across the country adding other profit centers to their sites, which sell things like coffee, gas and food to carwash customers.
The carwash will be touch-free with sensors that read the contours of a vehicle.
According to Cordova, it will be the first of three retail centers he plans to build in the north metro area in Brighton.
The new wash is equipped with a full-service hand wash tunnel and an express exterior tunnel.
“We are extremely excited about operating in this area and being able to service the community,” Mark Curtis, president of Splash Car Wash, said.

The plan had been in the works for almost two years, and faced opposition because of the increased amount of traffic the site will bring.
“I think it’s just a matter of a growing population,” David Schuh, a five-year resident of the area said.
An existing gas station on the site will be demolished to make room for the new facility, and the new split-face brick veneer will be part of a closed building that is required in the zoning code.
This is the third Laser Wash to open in Pittsburgh.
Crook was issued a variance that will allow him to start building on the site, but the Department of Transportation rejected Crook’s plan to allow access to the carwash from the state highway.

The carwash will be a part of a strip mall that also includes a convenience store, coffee shop, butchery, bakery and restaurants.
The project is set to begin in early June, and may include other retail businesses or doctor and dentist offices .
