Zips Express Car Wash, the Arkansas-based car wash business known for its “three-minute wash”, is coming to Sanford. A “coming soon” sign has been posted in front of what is currently a small wooded lot Dunkin Donuts and Majestic Auto Sales on South Horner Boulevard near the intersection of U.S. 421 and N.C. 87.
Zip’s currently has 94 locations in 11 states, and the Sanford location is part of an expansion in this part of the state (there are currently seven locations in North Carolina around Asheville and Winston-Salem).
Zip’s will mark the first fully-automated drive-through car wash in Sanford, not counting the few gas stations in the city that also offer smaller car wash options. Sanford is currently home to several car wash businesses that feature hand washing and interior detailing.
To get an idea of what Zips will offer, here’s the “company overview video” featuring overly enthusiastic employees.
“Heck, man. I just love making people happy.”
