Mint Eco Car Wash offers free washes for police vehicles

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — In celebration of National Police Week, Mint Eco Car Wash announced in a press release that they will be offering free carwashes for police vehicles as a permanent part of Mint Eco’s community outreach initiative.

To date, Mint Eco has washed over 500 police cars across many police departments in the county, including the West Palm Beach Police Department, the Palm Beach Police Department, the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.

Geoffrey Jervis, co-founder and CEO of Mint Eco, shared, “While we will never be able to repay the men and women of the police forces who protect us every day, our free carwash for police vehicles program is a small step in the right direction. Ever since we founded Mint Eco in 2019, we have offered support for the police force that patrols the neighborhood within which we have a carwash. The principle is simple, ‘If you wear Kevlar for me, we will wash your car for free.’ Today, we are making the program permanent for any municipality within which we do business.”

Vic Monteleone, co-founder and president of Mint Eco, added, “One of our pillars as a business is a long-term commitment to bettering the communities where we do business. Great communities are built on the pillars of trust and safety, and you can’t have those two things without a dedicated police presence. We appreciate everything that our police departments have done to keep our communities, customers and families safe and want them to know they will always have our support as a local business.”

Details of the free wash program state that Mint Eco Car Wash will provide a free carwash to any police vehicle from a municipality within which Mint Eco has a carwash. 

Mint Eco currently has carwashes located in West Palm Beach and Jupiter. 

The Palm Beach Police Department, as a neighboring municipality, as well as the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office are also included in the offer. 

Mint Eco plans to have a carwash in every municipality in Palm Beach County and will extend this offer as it grows.

“Here at Mint Eco, we know better than anyone that maintaining a large fleet of vehicles in top condition starts with keeping them clean,” shared Shannon Hunihan, chief marketing officer for Mint Eco. “What we also know, from listening to friends of Mint Eco, is that it is often hard for an officer to find a clean, safe spot to make a stop while on patrol to use the restroom or refill a water bottle. We want our local law enforcement to know that they are always welcome to stop by any Mint Eco and use our facilities, any time we are open. We also have free coffee available for you on those extra-long days.”
