FOND DU LAC, WI — The original Jet Stream Car Wash opened in 1963 and back then the full-service carwash involved employees in wetsuits and cars were pulled through the tunnel by a chain, according to the Fond du Lac Reporter. Today, 50 years later, the wash uses state-of-the-art conveyor equipment and has incorporated a quick lube profit center.
The Nov. 15 story said Jet Stream was founded in 1963 by David Tack and three other partners. Through the years, locations were added in Stevens Point and Oshkosh, WI, and then a second one opened in Fond du Lac. In 1990, Jet Stream Oil and Lube Center opened in Fond du Lac as well.
“We use the best car wash equipment and car wash cleaning process to produce a great finished product,” Walt Tack, CEO and owner of Jet Stream Clean Enterprises, stated in the story. “We recently replaced our soft cloth brush material with foam pads for an even safer carwash and recently implemented our Quality Control Team to improve the cleaning process on the inside of the vehicle and the removal of bugs, salt and mud on the outside."
Tack credits the success and longevity of the business to their staff. Currently, the chain employs around 35 employees. “The members of our staff are top-notch and our customers know that they will receive the best possible service every time they come here,” Tack said in the story.
