FAIRFIELD, CT — Michael Shullman, owner of the newly opened Russell Speeder’s Car Wash, renovated a 3,737-square-foot building that previously housed The Villa Ave. Car Wash. To celebrate his achievement, Shullman offered free washes for the first three days of operation, The Fairfield Citizen Reported. 

The Nov. 20 story stated that Russell Speeder’s was first started by Shullman’s grandfather Herman in 1963. The company is based in Norwalk, CT, and has locations in Norwalk, Stamford, Milford, Shelton and now Fairfield. It also has smaller venues in the Midwest and Florida.
