Professional Carwashing & Detailing

Is your lobby all that it can be?

February 1, 2012

As the modern carwash has evolved, so too has the carwash lobby. Gone are the rustic lobbies of the past, where customers were lucky to find a rickety chair shoved in a dusty, dark corner. Today, many washes look at their lobbies as additional profit centers. From a full bar to a full selection of car products, lobby sales and services have proven to be important for the two carwashes below … and we've got the pictures to prove it.

This is definitely not the typical carwash lobby. During the day, the space acts as a comfortable lobby where customers can wait while their car is being washed. At night, it becomes a BarWash. The lobby bar hosts weekly karaoke on Thursdays and live band performances on Fridays.
