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!
