For car wash proprietors, the monthly revenue club membership ensures a consistent income stream, regardless of weather conditions.


Full-service car washes offer a wide array of services, including detailing, express detailing, impulse items in a welcoming lobby, and, in some instances, a lube center.

  • Personal Arrival: Customers drive onto the lot and disembark from their vehicles.

  • Warm Greeting: A friendly service adviser welcomes customers, recommending the most suitable car wash services.

  • Payment Process: Customers can either pay for the wash on the spot or acquire a presell ticket to present to a cashier within the lobby.

  • Thorough Vacuuming: The vehicle undergoes meticulous vacuuming to prepare for the wash.

  • Careful Handling: An experienced employee guides the vehicle into the wash tunnel, ensuring its safe passage.

  • Automated Wash: Inside the tunnel, a conveyor moves the vehicle through the wash, employing precisely timed equipment and high-quality chemicals for cleaning and partial drying.

  • Perfect Finish: At the tunnel's end, another dedicated employee takes the vehicle to the finishing area, meticulously drying it, cleaning the glass, and wiping the dash clean.


  • Highest Ticket Average: The full-service wash stands out for its income potential, claiming the highest ticket average per car among all car wash business models. This is attributed to the perceived value of the wash and the personalized customer interaction.

  • Customer Interaction: Full-service car washes facilitate multiple points of contact with customers, including the service adviser or greeter, the cashier, and the employee delivering the cleaned vehicle. Each interaction provides an opportunity to add value to services and gather valuable feedback from loyal customers, a level of interaction unmatched by other car wash segments.

  • Customer Loyalty: Despite the higher cost of entry and steeper learning curve, a well-executed full-service model creates hurdles for competitors, making it challenging to lure away loyal customers. This acts as a protective barrier, ensuring customer loyalty and retention.
