Nelson described the wash industry as fragmented: “There are really good operators and some folks who aren't so good. You have to be working with the really good operators. It only takes a few bad experiences to drag the reputation down.”

Nascar Car Wash, which owns the exclusive rights to develop washes using the Nascar name for 20 years, features mostly express washes, and each location costs around $2.5 million to develop. The locations generate over $1 million annually, said NDP President Dean Tomich in the story.
