MOKENA, IL — A carwash/drive-thru Dunkin Donuts/pet wash/gas station and c-store multi-profit center opened here, according to the MokenaPatch.
The March 15 story said Gas N Wash was opened by Len McEnery. McEnery’s family had owned the Gas City chain which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in 2010. Those gas stations have since been rebranded as Speedway.
McEnery said Mokena was a good place to start out and hopes to open more locations.
Construction started last November and the gas station was opened four months later in February.
Village Economic and Community Development Director Alan Zordan said at the ribbon cutting ceremony, “(McEnery) took a gamble on building through the winter and did a fantastic job.”
