The latest in car wash technology will soon “launch” in Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin according to the Journal Times. Rocket Wash car wash is a $3 million facility that is currently in a test opening phase as the owners test each one of the features of the automatic tunnel wash. The business is part of a new plaza that will also include a gas station, Dunkin’ Donuts and a restaurant. While the businesses aren’t all affiliated, the convenience of so many stops in one spot is certainly going to be a draw for customers.
The owner of the plaza points to the car wash’s walls as another draw for customers. Rather than solid concrete, the walls are made of glass so that you can see right in to the cars being washed. The owner Mike Willkomm called it a “brew house effect.”
The car wash technology, from a company in Holland, Michigan, is not a conveyor belt wash that requires one’s tires to line up exactly into two tracks. Instead, the driver pulls the vehicle between two large, red balls and onto a large conveyor belt that doesn’t require exact tire alignment.
The full hours of operation are from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the week and from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sundays. Washes begin at $6 and then range in price all the way up to $15. Frequent customers can opt instead of a radio sticker on their windshield for unlimited wash packages each month. That will cost you either $20 or $35 every four weeks.
