HOLLISTER, Mo. — Nicholas Gage, a 17-year-old Hollister High School graduate, will open Slick Nick’s Car Wash, according to Branson Tri-Lakes News.
Gage plans to use his trust fund, which was set up by his late aunt Coni Gage, to open the wash, stated the release, and once his brother and cousin get a little older, Cage said they will help him manage it.
“I feel like [Slick Nick’s] is going to be good for this area,” reported Gage in the release. “The closest good [carwash] is in Branson and people who live here do not like to drive to Branson.”
The wash will be the latest establishment for the Gage family, who currently has various developments in the city, informed the release, which was a key factor in the 17-year old’s decision to open the carwash.
“I want to keep the business going in my family,” said Gage in the release. “I don’t want it to stop, it has been going on for so long. It was actually my grandpa who came up with the name ‘Slick Nick.’ It was a nickname he called me all the time when I was a little kid.”
Gage plans to manage the wash, which is projected to open this August, while pursuing a business management degree from Ozarks Technical Community College’s Table Rock Campus in the fall, noted the release.
