Meet the Owner

Hi, my name is Kimberly and I have proudly owned "Citrus Heights Car Wash" since 2003.   Back then, the car wash did NOT have a name, and it was rundown and tired-looking. 


The car wash just needed a “woman’s-touch” and some love. 


Here are a few photos from 2003...   

My business philosophy is simple – CLEANLINESS, QUALITY & SERVICE.  


While most self-service car washes are owned by men, primarily mechanics and contractors, very few are owned by women.  I used to be intimidated by this fact, but have learned to use my strengths to personalize my business.  My strengths are I’m creative, organized, personable and positive.  I want to be a beacon of light to my customers, whether with a smile, encouraging word or act of kindness.  I’m very grateful that I own a business I love so much, that gives me an opportunity to be of service to my customers and my community.


Over the past 17 years, I have poured blood, sweat, tears and profits back into my business to become a bright and beautiful car wash! 


At my car wash, I enjoy the unpredictability and variety of my work.  No two days are ever the same, and there is never a dull moment!  For me, it’s NOT about making money.  Every day is an opportunity to make a personal connection (a new friend) and a positive impact.  Most days, I can be found on-site greeting new customers, making change, explaining the wash menu options and answering any questions they may have.  At the same time, I may also be cleaning a muddy bay, making an unexpected repair, then patiently confronting a customer bucket-washing on a busy Saturday morning, then jump-starting a dead battery, to sympathizing with a long-time customer who is struggling with health or financial issues.


In this day, a little kindness goes a long way that customers will long remember.  One of my favorite quotes is from Maya Angelou: “People don’t always remember what you say or do, but they will always remember how you made them feel.”  At the end of most days, I am tired and dirty, but feel an enormous sense of satisfaction, peace and  joy!
