Industry veteran’s carwash chain to add third location

DALLAS — Tommy’s Terrific Carwash is planning its third location to open in 2016, according to a press release.

The express tunnel and hand drying can clean and wash a car in three minutes, said the release. Customers can also use complimentary vacuums and mat cleaning machines.

The first Tommy’s location opened in 2008, and has washed more than 800,000 cars since then. The company’s second location opened on Ross Avenue in 2012, and it washed about 100,000 last year, surpassing growth projects, stated the article.

“Following the success of our Ross Avenue location east of downtown, we are now ready to expand South,” said Tom Miller, owner of Tommy Terrific’s Carwash, in the release. “We see many similarities in the two areas with the considerable retail and residential growth and overall community revitalization.”

Miller has more than 25 years of experience in the carwash industry. He also owns and operates TradeMark Car Wash, a full-service wash also in Texas, reported the article.

Construction on the new Tommy’s location will begin in Spring 2016 after completion of the Dallas Horseshoe Project connector ramp located directly to the north of the property on Interstate-30, explained the article.
