HAMILTON, Bermuda — David and Tracy Salawu decided to launch a carwash after returning to Bermuda, following 20 years of overseas missionary work, and not finding jobs, according to The Royal Gazette.
The couple first tested the jet carwash concept near their mission base in Nigeria, stated the article.
After the Nigeria carwash became a success in the community, the Salawus turned their attention toward the Bermuda location, which took around six months to construct, reported the article.
Budget-Jet Car Wash & Valet Services held its grand opening on Aug. 28, continued the article, and the response has been encouraging.
“We had a company executive who stopped by and said it was excellent, and she was going to tell all her staff to come here,” said Tracy in the article.
Customers have offered the new owners positive feedback, informed the article, including a truck driver whose vehicle couldn’t fit in the automated carwashes in the area.
The jet-powered carwash is solely hand operated to “give greater attention to detail,” added the article, and is the first of its kind on the island.
The business is a touchless carwash using jet-wash appliances, vacuums and blowers, noted the article.
“We are proud of our service, and we use 100 percent biodegradable and environmentally-friendly products,” stated Tracy in the article.
