CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Autobell® Car Wash Inc. recently added a new market within its five-state territory, opening its first location in northern Virginia, according to a press release.

The full service carwash resides at 45655 Shepard Dr. in Sterling, Virginia, in the former Sweetwater Splash Car Wash location, the release continued; Lucas Farrants is the store manager.

The new location is the family-owned and -operated Autobell chain’s 77th store and its second in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, the release noted, joining its Annapolis, Maryland, wash that opened last fall.

Autobell is the nation’s second largest conveyor carwash chain, offering an array of customized exterior and interior cleaning options, with most of its personalized wash services completed in 15 minutes or less, the release stated.

“We’ve enjoyed an encouraging reception in the area for our brand of full-service carwash at the Annapolis location,” stated Autobell COO Carl Howard, “and we’re excited to continue this expansion with the Sterling store.”

The new wash and all locations of Autobell are currently open 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
