PLANO, Texas — As Plano continues to boom with new business, one more officially calls the city home: TradeMark Car Wash, located at 1101 Coit Road, is now open and offering customers a whiff of that new carwash smell, according to a company press release.
The company held its official Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting on Oct. 13th, the release stated.
Husband and wife ownership team Kim and Tom Miller, Director of Marketing Lanese Barnett, Location Manager Oscar Hernandez and John Munk with Texas Security Bank cut the ribbon and welcomed guests from the Plano Chamber of Commerce, the release noted.
Oak Cliff artist Cameron Smith, who was commissioned to create the interior artwork, also attended, the release added.
Guests enjoyed music, food and a full bar while touring the facility, according to the release.
Combining European technology with American luxury, the release continued, the $5 million facility features a 135-foot carwash conveyor, dual 80-foot detailing belts and a lobby that rivals a high-end sports bar or swanky hotel lounge.
Surrounded by seamless glass windows, customers can fully view their vehicles’ progression from start to finish while sipping on espresso or wine, the release stated.
The upscale carwash serves complimentary beer and wine while awaiting Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission certification, the release noted; in addition, the lobby features local fountain drinks by Oak Cliff Beverage Works, complimentary freshly ground coffee, specialty coffees for purchase and a variety of both indulgent and healthy snack items.
“With this location, we really took a step back and asked ourselves, ‘As a consumer, what would be the perfect carwash?’ And to us, this is it!” remarked Tom Miller, owner of TradeMark Car Wash. “Get a professional carwash and enjoy a good glass of wine while watching sports or the news on one of several HD screens.”
The centerpiece of the location is the innovative exterior design that features two 15-foot wide detail belts that create a moving assembly line with on-demand product applications where both the vehicle and cleaning staff are carried together through the cleaning process, the release stated.
The German technology is widely popular in Europe’s major cities, the release added; however, the detail belts are a first in Texas.
“Last year we attended the International Carwash Association’s Europe Show in Amsterdam and were introduced to a more efficient method of processing vehicles,” said Miller. “Adopting a moving production approach improves productivity in our detail services delivering consistent, high-quality service on full display to the customer from the comforts of the lobby.”
This is the second location for the brand, the release noted; TradeMark Car Wash has served the Allen community for more than decade.
And while the Plano address was home to previous carwash iterations, the release stated, following an extensive yearlong overhaul, this facility has staying power and is poised to become a community staple.
TradeMark Car Wash will employ approximately 75 staff and is currently hiring for all positions, the release noted; applicants are encouraged to apply in person at the Plano location.
