Business Spotlight: Quick Quack Car Wash

PHOENIX – Quick Quack Car Wash offers top-quality exterior washes and shines, operating four express car washes with six more locations under construction that are scheduled to open in 2019 located across the Phoenix Valley. 

Quick Quack Car Wash offers a Basic Wash & Dry that customers can upgrade with triple foam, undercarriage wash, tire shine and rain repellent. 

For even more luxurious upgrades for customers on-the-go, the company offers Carnauba Wax and the Lucky Duck, which is a three-step paint sealant “for a shine you can feel.”

Quick Quack Car Wash was created by five friends in 2004, developing a business plan that originally started as a project for business school and eventually grew into six original locations based in Sacramento, Calif.

The California locations were started under a different name, Splash & Dash Car Wash, but in 2008 the owners were looking to expand into different markets.

Owners, Jason Johnson, Tim Wright, Chris Vaterlaus, Greg Drennan and Travis Kimball worked through several challenges in the beginning, but ultimately, they were able to acquire Quick Quack Car Wash based in Amarillo, Texas.

Eventually they rebranded all the Sacramento locations under the Quick Quack Car Wash name and “haven’t looked back since.”

“After managing through the recession and developing strategic partnerships, Quick Quack Car Wash now operates more than 70 locations in five states: California, Texas, Utah, Arizona and Colorado,” Travis Kimball stated.

Quick Quack Car Wash’s “top-wash package” is its best-selling because it provides the best overall quality wash, shine and protection for vehicles, and it comes with an entertaining light and colored soap experience that appeals to all ages.

There are also unlimited car wash memberships that allow customers to pay one low, monthly fee for unlimited car washes each month.  The membership is only the cost of two to three normal priced car washes.

“We honestly feel like it is our team of people that makes us unique,” Kimball stated. “We surely pride ourselves on creating a fun, fast and effective car cleaning experience for our customers.”

The business also believes in taking pride in their communities and holds “Preview Fundraisers” with every grand opening.  During the event Quick Quack Car Wash selects members of the community to hold a fundraiser for, while giving free preview car washes to their supporters.

The car wash then matches the donations from the fundraiser and presents the total amount in a check presentation at its ribbon cutting.

“Our mission is to change lives for the better,” he said. “We are doing more than building and running car washes, we are training leaders and impacting communities.”
