MIDDLETOWN, Del. — A new Greenhill Car Wash is expected to open on Main Street in Middletown, which will mean four carwashes and one detail shop within the town’s limits, according to the Middletown Transcript.
Chris and Cathi McQuaide, owners of Diamond Car Wash, and other carwash owners in the area feel that carwashing is “good business” as more people move to Middletown, stated the article
The McQuaides started their business in 2005 “when the construction boom in the area was nearing its peak,” reported the article, and during that time only two carwashes were located in the area.
“The MOT Car wash was on Main, and there was also one at the Citgo on Route 71; that one had an automatic carwash and wash bays,” recalled Chris McQuaide in the article. “I always wanted to have a carwash since I was a kid, so we saw how Middletown was growing and opened our carwash here.”
The McQuaides moved from Elkton, Maryland, and opened Diamond Car Wash, added the article.
“We love our customers; they’re like family to us,” said Cathi McQuaide in the article. “Customers see that there is a sense of urgency on our part when they bring their cars to us. We really do look after them well.”
For David Shepherd, co-owner of Greenhill Car Wash, the growth in Middletown was a “green light to allow for the expansion of his business to a new area,” informed the article.
“We’re always looking for new locations and focus on areas of growth. We saw that was happening south [of] the canal, where Middletown is, and came here,” stated Shepherd in the article.
Shepherd will open a new Greenhill Car Wash location at the former MOT Car Wash, which served the community for more than 30 years, reported the article.
The carwash will be renovated into a state-of-the-art facility with new and environmentally friendly equipment over the next few weeks, noted the article, and will also feature round-the-clock customer service and vending machines carrying car care products and accessories.
“It’s a really good location and we’re excited about it,” said Shepherd in the article. “People love having their cars washed. I always say that if you’re in a bad mood go for a carwash.”
