New WetGo PRO opens in Pittsburgh area

PITTSBURGH — WetGo, a division of GetGo Café + Market, has opened a new WetGo PRO carwash in Fox Chapel, Pennsylvania, according to a press release.

The WetGo PRO is a remodel of an existing WetGo at 1081 Freeport Rd.

Its features include:

  • Multiple, free, high-powered vacuum stalls
  • Equipment upgrades for enhanced cleaning and theatre in the wash bay
  • Complimentary towel service on-site.

GetGo Café + Market is evolving its carwash offering in the Pittsburgh area with the launch of WetGo PRO — a unique carwash experience that utilizes a longer wash tunnel with cutting-edge cleaning equipment to provide a superior wash in nearly half the time of a traditional carwash.

“The WetGo Pro experience continues to raise the bar on what express carwashing means in the Pittsburgh area,” said Sean McBride, vice president of carwash at GetGo. “From start to finish, the customer experience was always considered.”

GetGo’s Go Unlimited Wash subscriptions start as low as $14.99 a month and can be used at any of the company’s 40-plus WetGo locations, offering subscribers the ability to wash as often as they want at whichever WetGo location is most convenient for them.

Fox Chapel is the third WetGo PRO location, with the company retrofitting 11 more locations in the coming months as well as the first two new builds this summer.

There will be one winner each day for a total of seven winners.

7 Flags Express Car Wash will be partnering with The Leaven for its grand opening.

The Leaven is a non-profit organization that revitalizes communities through early education intervention.

The first center was opened in Fairfield, California, in 2009 and has since expanded to have 19 centers throughout California.

7 Flags Car Wash will be donating $2,000 and match customer donations during the grand opening up to $10,000 to The Leaven.

7 Flags Express Car Wash features the most advanced technology in the carwash business today — from the automated pay terminals to brand-new tunnel equipment, along with free vacuums for all paying customers to use as well as free mat cleaners.

7 Flags also uses a new, state-of-the-art water reclamation system that captures all of the water that’s used, allowing the reuse of over 80% of the recycled water captured in the wash process. 

7 Flags uses less water to wash a vehicle than it takes to do a load of laundry.

The new tunnel will have a dual conveyor belt to enhance customer feel and experience through the carwash tunnel.

The carwash will also be introducing a new tunnel-applied ceramic coating that can be added on to any wash.

Jack Anthony, owner of 7 Flags, could not be more excited. “We have worked extremely hard to get the perfect carwash experience for our customers, and I think we have nailed it. Not only does the carwash produce the cleanest car, but it is by far the most fun carwash I have ever seen.”

ZIPS Car Wash and Susan G. Komen® partner again to ‘Wash for a Cure’

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — ZIPS Car Wash announced its continued support of Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading breast cancer organization, with a renewed commitment to raise at least $100,000 again this year with the help of its customers to support Komen’s life-saving work, according to a press release.

From May 1, 2021 to June 30, 2021, Zips Car Wash LLC will donate $5 to Komen from each customer’s purchase of one of its best carwashes through the Zips Car Wash Rewards App.

To encourage guests to show their support, ZIPS is discounting this carwash package to just $15 and donating $5 of that purchase to Komen.

In addition, 100% of all customer donations collected online at www.zipscarwash.com and in the ZIPS Rewards App will go straight to Komen.

Adding a simple $1, $3 or $5 donation to a carwash purchase at participating ZIPS locations is another way to “Wash for a Cure.”

“We’re excited to partner again over the coming months with Susan G. Komen to support their efforts to end breast cancer,” said Gene Dinkens, president of ZIPS Car Wash. “We’re discounting one of our best carwash packages and donating from those purchases, because we believe in Komen’s efforts and the lifesaving work they have tasked themselves with accomplishing reaches nearly every guest we serve.”

As one in eight women will be diagnosed at some point in her lifetime, nearly everyone knows someone who has been touched by breast cancer. 

Komen is supporting people facing breast cancer today, through its advocacy and patient care services, while it is also tirelessly searching for the cures. 

ZIPS customers can enjoy a free top wash when they download the ZIPS Rewards App here and show their support of Komen with in-app purchases and donations.
