Owner says customers requested second location

SCIO, MI — Zippy Auto Wash will double its workforce and add a second location, which will be 5,000 square feet, and is scheduled to be open by October or November of this year.

SCIO, MI — Ground was broken for the construction of a second Zippy Auto Wash here, according to AnnArbor.com.

The May 14 story stated that Zippy’s owner, Corey Weaver, decided to open a second location based on the success of the first wash as well as customer requests.

“We had a lot of requests from customers who live on the west side of town,” Weaver said in the story. “The idea is to make it another option for people on that side.”

Weaver is hopeful that the new 5,000-square-foot site will be ready to open by October or November of this year, and he noted that carwashing is a lucrative business year-round. Customers want to wash off salt in the winter and mud in the summer, so there’s an “endless supply” of dirty cars for the business.

While Zippy currently has 10 employees, Weaver has plans to double that number closer to the time of the grand opening. Overall, 20 to 25 employees will be needed to support both sites, and Weaver is looking for attendants, assistant managers and site managers.
