Motor City Car Wash debuts
Motor City Car Wash opened last month in West Palm Beach, FL.
The full-serve carwash promised during its application process to employ workers who live in the community in exchange for receiving city and county economic grants — a total of $150,000.
Over 60 percent of Motor City Car Wash's workforce lives in the neighborhood, and the grants have helped to defray the $1.2 million project's cost for partners Cedric Yapp, Richard Bowman, David Daszkal, Jim Knight and Jeff Snow.
