Darien, CT-based Splash Car Wash celebrated its 35th anniversary with the opening of its 19th location in Bedford Hills, NY May 1, 2016. The site was welcomed back by several customers who had patronized the location Splash ran in the area for 18 years before closing in 2013. Stage, screen, and television actor, Chazz Palminteri, was the first customer.
The car wash has two tunnels and a separate detailing building to serve the diverse customer base in the area. One tunnel is a conveyorized full service, hand car wash, which has employees using lammswool mitts to wash the car. The service includes vacuuming and window cleaning, and is performed in less than 15 minutes.
A second tunnel is outfitted with automated equipment to which Splash added automatic pay gates. The process features state-of-the-art equipment manufactured by Motor City Wash Works and includes a “Dry n Shine” machine to finish the car.
“What a great way for us to celebrate our 35th anniversary”, said Chris Fisher, one of the co-founders of Splash. “We are just so excited to be back in Bedford Hills. It’s a great community we served for close to two decades and we think they’ll like what we’ve done with this new site.”
While the location is similar to Splash’s sites in Greenwich and Shelton, CT in that it boasts two wash tunnels, it is the largest facility Splash operates. “This is really our flagship location,” stated Mark Curtis, another co-founder.
