Car washing has never been a more profitable endeavor. With more cars on the road and the frequent implementation of municipal regulations that prohibit car washing in driveways and parking lots due to waterway pollution, car wash owners are experiencing heavier volumes and frequencies of customer purchases. Total annual car wash sales are estimated to exceed $24 billion!
This is an industry that is experiencing tremendous growth, and external factors are ensuring that this trend won’t be going out of fashion anytime soon.
Starting a car wash business is a serious investment, as most profitable businesses are! Depending on whether you are starting from scratch, have land, or are retrofitting an already-standing building that you own, the investment will definitely vary. Starting from scratch car wash businesses can cost from between $1 million to $5 million USD. There are many factors to consider, such as location, real estate, business model and the type of car wash that you want to build.
To make sure that you are ready to undertake this exciting venture, you should consult with a sales representative and assess your financing options.
