GREELEY, Colo. — Greg Bomgaars, who owns a carwash in Denver, discovered a great opportunity to launch a carwash in Greeley when visiting a friend in the area to watch a football game, according to the Greeley Tribune.
He decided a carwash was a smart investment for the city when he stopped at King Soopers for a quick bite and wanted to wash his car but King Soopers was too busy, reported the article, and Bomgaars couldn’t find a carwash close by.
Bomgaars then discussed the carwash idea with his friend, and resident of Greeley, Eric Stoffel, added the article.
“We just kind of ran with it,” said Stoffel in the article. “From here to [Interstate] 25, there’s not another automated [carwash until] you get to Fort Collins.”
In the beginning of April, stated the article, Wash N Gloss opened on 10th Street.
Bomgaars launched the carwash with the help of his friends and business partners, informed the article.
Jen Trimble, another Greeley native, worked with Bomgaars, Rexanne Kohler and Rick Masterson, continued the article, and the four investors brought in their friend Stoffel to manage the carwash.
Wash N Gloss features a 160-foot tunnel, reported the article, which the carwash’s founders/operators believe is the longest tunnel in Greeley.
“Generally what that means is: The longer the tunnel, the more you can do to the car as far as cleaning and drying it,” stated Stoffel in the article.
The business also features an automated polish tunnel, added the article, which is the first of its kind in the area.
“The polish tunnel was actually designed and developed in Europe,” said Bomgaars in the article. “They’ve brought that technology to the United States. There’s another polish tunnel in Knoxville, Tennessee, and little Greeley, Colorado, has number two, which is unique.”
Stoffel explained that Wash N Gloss can wash, polish or detail a vast range of vehicles, such as motorcycles, trailers, RVs and boats, continued the article, and prices range from $6 for an express carwash to $20 for the Platinum Polish package.
With the carwash’s unique services and ideal location, noted the article, Stoffel is looking forward to seeing what’s in store for the business.
“We’re just a little ma-and-pa carwash,” he asserted in the article. “[We’re] just trying to keep Greeley clean.”
