SAN MARCOS, Texas — The Wash Tub Car Wash & Boutique announced the opening of its newest location in San Marcos, according to a press release.

Since 1986, stated the release, the Vizza family has grown its local carwash and service boutique to include 23 full-service carwashes and detailing centers throughout Georgetown, Kerrville, New Braunfels, San Antonio, Schertz and Round Rock.

The chain’s focus on the neighborhood and caring for customer relationships, as well as strategic partnerships with like-minded companies such as H-E-B, has helped The Wash Tub stay competitive in the industry, reported the release.

The latest location at 1200 Thorpe Lane is supported on one side by Texas State University’s population of more than 35,000 people, continued the release, and met by a corridor to Interstate 35 on the other side.

“The population and development boom along I-35 shows San Antonio and Austin could eventually grow together into a mega, metro-region, presenting a junction and meeting point at [The Wash Tub] for students, commuters, travelers and locals alike,” informed the release.

Matt Vizza, president and CEO of the carwash chain, explained in the release that installing new equipment, transferring top-performing employees to lead training efforts and attaching “the brand’s boutique of home, apparel and gift” will help complete the project.

The Wash Tub is excited to join the community of San Marcos, noted the release, and is hoping to be a part of the area’s growth, supporting local businesses, universities and athletic programs.
