may 2020

After what seemed like the longest last two months, we were finally able to get back to some normalcy. Club Carwash is Headquartered in Columbia, MO, where some of the original locations came from. Columbia is home to 3 locations serving both the south/southeast and north sides of Columbia. We have known for a long time that we wanted to be on the west side of town as well. On May 4th, we were able to open our 4th Columbia location and are excited to be able to serve the residents on the west side of town. We also want to take this time to thank all the front-line workers during this COVID-19 pandemic. We were able to provide washes for nurses, doctors and first responders in April. We gladly gave away over 8,500 washes! Thank you! There has also been many other individuals and companies that have allowed us to continue to work safely, and we appreciate everything you have done to help accomplish that. We also appreciate our customers who have stood by us, understood our course of actions and worked with us during these changes. We seem to be back to some normalcy but also still taking many precautions every day! Stay safe and stay healthy clubbers! #JoinTheClub

January 2020

Happy New Year from the Club Carwash team! We are off to a great start this new year with some exciting new things coming your way! It may be cold, gloomy and snowy but that hasn't stopped us from providing our customers with a clean vehicle. We have many people this time of year ask us when we close for the "season" or if we are open when it is 30 degrees. We don't close. We close twice a year. We believe our members pay for a service and they should be able to use it when they want. So, if you want to wash in the rain, feel free. While we try not to close, there are times we are forced to close. Ice, snow and extremely low temperatures will force us to close. A few years ago, many mid-westerners got stuck in a commute of 3-12 hours due to ice. We don't play with ice and neither should you! Our equipment doesn't like cold temperatures, and our employees really don't like it. We try to stay open above 0 degrees, but you also must factor in wind chill. Check Facebook for closures! So the moral of the story is we try not to close! The weather may be crummy, but it's awful hot at HQ! A growing company means more employees. We are proud to announce some new and old faces to the office! Mid 2019 we added Justin Barnes to the construction team. He will oversee all new construction and remodels alongside Owner, Rollie. Late last year we added former Manager, Taylor Noll to our Marketing and Membership team! We have also added another manager, Derek Zeller. Zeller is our sole accident claim specialist. 2020 brought a couple new faces to the office! Danny Mueller transitioned from Assistant Area Manager of Mid Missouri locations to recruitment. Recent Columbia College Grad, Hannah Stambaugh joined the team as our Graphic Designer! Joining us in February is John Bishop as HR Director. Bishop is coming off many years at Nike and will enjoy not traveling as much. We have been blessed to not only find amazing people in our office this year but as well to many of our locations! We appreciate all our team's hard work and dedication to this company! Happy New Year from the Club Carwash Team!

Club Carwash is happy to announce their 9th location in Salina, Kansas! This will be the second Club Carwash in Salina, located at 2675 Market Place, formerly the Salina Roller Rink, Starlite.

We are excited to be able to have a second location in Salina! We look forward to being able to provide the citizens of Salina with a clean, shiny car at each visit. Whether it be at our South Broadway location or new Market Place location, we look forward to serving you!
