Detailer opening a second location - Professional Carwashing & Detailing

Detailer opening a second location

BRANDON, IA — After his first location proved successful, a detailer plans to open a second shop.

BRANDON, IA — Detailer Brian Oldenkamp is expanding his business and adding a second Oldenkamp Detail location here, reported.

The Aug. 13 story stated that Oldenkamp was familiar with the community because he is a racing buff that has been at the local speedway weekly for the past five years as part of a pit crew.

Oldenkamp’s first location in nearby Sheldon has fared well over the past six years, and he is interested in opening a location in Brandon because there is a bigger customer base in the city.

The Sheldon location currently has two employees, and, if the new location takes off, there are plans to hire help there too. The new shop will be open by appointment, and Oldenkamp hopes to be open two to three days each week.

Oldenkamp Detail will provide detailing, window tinting, remote start installation and electronic installation.
