More than 200 car wash owners recently converged on Austin, TX for the October edition of the popular Southwest Car Wash Association “On the Road Again.”

Following lively round table discussions and idea exchange sessions covering a variety of car wash topics, attendees boarded buses and enjoyed a tour of several car wash locations. The car washes on the tour included: Bubble Clean Express Wash; Soapbox Express Car Wash, founded and operated proudly by veterans of the U.S. Marines; Mr. Sharky’s Car Wash, including six self-serve bays and a rollover automatic bay converted to a mini tunnel; Big Red Express, a 150 foot arch-covered wash tunnel; and Arbor Car Wash & Lube. Arbor features a wide range of services from the oil change to full-serve conveyorized wash to detailing — it also has an express-exterior lane.
