Specialty Car Wash Business Plan


1004 East Towne SquareMadison, Wisconsin 53705

The purpose of A.B.C., Inc. is to provide the area with a unique facility that combines both a full service car wash with a quality restaurant. People will be able to get their cars cleaned and/or detailed while they have a pleasant, quality meal. This plan was provided by Ameriwest Business Consultants, Inc.




Americans began a love affair with their cars as soon as the first one rolled off the assembly line. An integral part of this affair is keeping the family automobile clean and looking good. It didn't take long for "car laundries" to develop to make it easier to keep our cars looking great. Since these early car washes, we have seen a variety of different types of car washes develop around the country. We have seen automated, coin-operated, and brushless car washes come and go. We have seen car wash boutiques that combine one or more other businesses with the convenience of a car wash.

The purpose of A.B.C., Inc. is to provide the area with a unique facility that combines both a full service car wash with a quality restaurant. People will be able to get their cars cleaned and/or detailed while they have a pleasant, quality meal. This type of operation is unique to southern Wisconsin. The atmosphere will be friendly and open. The business will display a new attitude. It will treat customers like first-class citizens and try to make them feel like they are at home. We will also offer a variety of gift-related items. The services will be offered at a competitive price and pricing will be reviewed periodically.

The operating hours will be Monday through Sunday from 7:00 A.M. through 7:00 P.M. We will review our hours periodically and extend them to meet demand, when necessary.


The business is in a start-up mode. It is a Wisconsin for profit "C" corporation. Operations will be conducted in a 10,000-square-foot building located on a 5-acre site on East Towne Square, which is just a half-block south of Plymouth Road. It is approximately one half mile west of I-90. We estimate we will serve 80,000 restaurant and gift shop customers and 98,550 car wash customers the first year. This is a conservative estimate and our projections do reflect the seasonal nature of each. More customers of the car wash will be served during months with bad weather and more customers in the restaurant and gift shop will be served during the summer. To attain these goals we will use a combination of media advertising, flyers, and word-of-mouth. The customers are there, the experience and ability are there and, with a proper funding, we are convinced the profit will be there.


The company is set up as a corporation with David Odle and his wife, Sally, owning 100% of all outstanding stock. David will serve as president. Sally Odle will serve as vice president and manager of the restaurant. Kirt Lansing will serve as secretary, treasurer, and manager of the car wash. David will be involved in sales, public relations, advertising, planning, and equipment purchases, and will provide the function as general contractor for the project. Sally will oversee the restaurant operation and will be involved in sales, public relations, advertising, planning, insurance, purchasing, labor, and equipment purchases. Kirt Lansing will manage the day-to-day operations of the car wash and will be involved in sales, public relations, advertising, office management, personnel, operations, planning, purchasing, labor and equipment purchases, and maintenance. The business will employ additional employees who will be involved in cooking and waiting on tables in the restaurant, and as laborers on the car wash line and for additional support. They will be a combination of part-time and full-time. When volume picks up, additional part-time or full-time employees will be hired, as the workload requires. Ameriwest Business Consultants, Inc. will provide help in additional areas such as planning and general business advising when necessary and to supplement the Odles' overall business knowledge. The services of an accountant, attorney, and a qualified insurance agent will be retained.


A.B.C., Inc. will be unique in this part of Wisconsin. The combination of a car wash and a full-service restaurant will provide the ultimate in service to our customers. We will appeal to a wide spectrum of clientele. Nowhere else in southern Wisconsin does an operation combine the services of a car wash and detailing center along with those of a full-service restaurant.

The idea of combining a car wash and restaurant is to provide customers with an informal, social setting and atmosphere and to couple that with a level of convenience that cannot be found elsewhere. It also will prolong their stay by providing food or limited drink while their cars are being cleaned and detailed. In addition, on a limited basis, we may cater to private parties and special groups in the restaurant throughout the year, especially after normal closing hours.

The growth potential is virtually unlimited for the greater Madison area. The population is growing at an accelerated rate. It is rare in today's business world to find a true market void. That is exactly what A.B.C., Inc. has done. Our facility will have little true competition in southern Madison.


To finalize the project, A.B.C. will need to obtain new funding of approximately $1,400,000. This coupled with the $295,000 investment by the owners will provide the funding to acquire the land, build the improvements, purchase the machinery and equipment, and provide furnishings for the restaurant and initial inventory, supplies, and working capital for the restaurant, gift shop, and car wash.

  1. The most likely case assumes 90,000 customers the first year for the restaurant and gift shop and 105,550 customers for the car wash. The optimistic case assumes revenues and expenses will increase 15% over the most likely case. The pessimistic case assumes revenues and expenses will decrease 15% below the most likely case above.
  2. Cost of goods sold for the car wash will equal 6.44% of sales, 40% for the restaurant, and 53.33% for the gift shop.


  1. To provide a high quality, full-service car wash which will include complete car detailing, restaurant, and gift shop so that customers will perceive great value and give them the opportunity to have an enjoyable meal while their car is being washed or detailed.
  2. Service an average of 80,000 customers in 1999 for the restaurant and gift shop and 98,550 customers the first year for the car wash. We have projected a conservative increase of 5%, 6%, 7%, and 8% for years 2-5.
  3. To repay the entire loan amount by the end of the fifteenth year and to provide the shareholders with an exceptionally stable income.
  4. Our goal is to become the premier car wash destination in Madison during the next two years.
  5. A.B.C., Inc. plans to closely monitor changing technology to be certain that the company is using the latest and most cost effective equipment and that it keeps up with current trends in the marketplace.

When growth has stabilized we plan to add extra services for customer convenience such as delivery, Internet order taking, greater selection of products (especially seasonal), and continued growth of the food operations. In addition to the above goals we will survey our customers and make changes in our programs and add services to meet their changing ideas in the marketplace.

To obtain the first two sets of goals we will try to maximize sales with an extensive campaign to promote our service. We will utilize the radio stations and newspapers along with brochures, media advertising, pamphlets, use of coupons, referrals, and a variety of other advertising and marketing tools to reach the customer base of southern Madison. We expect to flood the market with advertising until consumers become aware of us and more comfortable with our company. As we grow, word-of-mouth referrals will bring in increasing numbers of customers and we will reduce our reliance on advertising.

The dominant driving force behind our company will be profit and income and to provide the best possible related products and service.

To become the premier car wash and detailing center in southern Madison, we will offer outstanding quality, good hours, exceptional service, and reasonable pricing. We will listen to our customers and conduct surveys.


Both cars and car washes have come a long way since the days of cranks and pails and sponges. The first car wash was opened in Detroit in 1914 when two young fellows opened the world's first car wash: the Automated Laundry. It was basically a pail and sponge type of operation. These early "Automobile Laundries" have evolved into sophisticated operations today.

Back in 1914 the cars had to be left all day, since they were pushed through the system manually, and even brass parts were removed for polishing by hand. Twenty-five years later, the first crude "automatic" conveyor car wash was opened in Hollywood, California. On busy days, as many as forty men splashed in the tunnel, soaping, scrubbing, wiping, and drying cars as they were pulled through.

Today, there are over 20,000 automatic car washes, many of which can completely wash and dry a car in less than thirty seconds, without it being touched by human hands. Some car washes handle 20,000 cars per month and net over $200,000 a year before income taxes. Net profits of $50,000 to $75,000 are common.

What happens when it rains? That seems to be the first question that prospective car wash owners ask. If your part of the country has 250 rain free days a year, you're in a good position to do business. Madison has 310 days of sunshine a year. We get just enough rain and snow to make it necessary to frequently wash the car. And remember that night or morning rains don't necessarily hurt business. In fact, the day after a heavy rain, business is usually better than normal in car washes because autos get muddy and sloppy driving around.

Car washes in northern climates do much more business during the winter because car owners are concerned with keeping their cars free of the corrosive road salts used for melting snow and ice.

One thing is certain: car washes are more popular than ever. Like so many other household chores, washing the car is becoming just too much work for busy professionals. Given a choice between spending a Saturday afternoon relaxing or being up to their armpits in soap, most working people will opt for a day of rest. And that spells good news for the car wash industry— both currently and for the future.

A successful car wash business is dependent on 3 factors:

  • location
  • vehicle flow
  • producing a good wash

Our goal is to not have one dissatisfied customer leave our business. With this business we will have to sell and resell our services over and over again. The National Restaurant Association estimates that satisfied customers tell an average of .7 (seven-tenths) other people they have had a positive experience. Unhappy customers tell 7 to 11 other people of their bad experience.

Ongoing decisions in car wash management include: maintenance of equipment, financial management, control of waste, personnel management, front man and managers, wash line crew, cashier, training programs, and establishing rules (hours of work, appearance, penalties, etc.). All of these areas will all be supervised by Kirt Lansing who has had experience in car washes and in other management situations.

Ongoing decision-making in the restaurant will include design of the menu, set-up, layout, server stations, dishwashing, furnishings, cashier station, rest rooms, traffic flow of employees, order taking procedures, error handling, supplies, inventory control, staffing, training, and cleanup. Sally Odle has previously owned and successfully run two restaurants and has the experience to supervise this operation.

We are selling cleanliness. We also realize that first impressions are of utmost importance and will always put our best foot forward.

There are nearly 500,000 restaurant units in the United States. However, there are very few that have been combined with full service car washes. The match seems perfect. People need their cars cleaned and they also need to eat. In today's busy world, it seems only natural to combine the two into one operation.

To maintain operations, the business will require sales tax licenses, health department permits, liquor license, and occupational use license.

The future holds the promise for almost unlimited growth and income as the business matures and considers other markets and products. Complementary products such as fleet service, additional seasonal products, and other functions at the restaurant also will be considered in the future in response to customer surveys indicating customer's wants and needs. Enhanced food services will be offered in the future as the needs are demonstrated. Future plans include additional locations and perhaps some limited franchising of this new concept.


David Odle graduated from Dane County Community College in 1970 with an Associate Degree in Food Service. He also received a Certificate in Business from the Mid-Central Business College. David served as a police officer for the city of Madison from 1960-1990. From 1981 to present, David founded Blue Mound Builders, which specializes in home construction. David also is licensed for commercial construction and is clearly competent to serve as general contractor for the proposed project. His 18 years' experience as a successful builder and business owner has demonstrated David's supervision and leadership skills.

Sally Odle has owned and managed several business operations. Between 1978-1980 she started and managed a pig litter operation. From 1980-1984 she owned and managed two restaurants named Black Feet and Fancy Food in Mauston. She designed and managed these restaurants. She was involved with menu design and built both into popular restaurants that earned reputations for high quality and affordable pricing. From 1986 to 1988 she owned her own real estate business, the Elite Real Estate Group, which has now merged with Monmouth and Associates. Sally's 30 years' experience in all areas of responsibility obviously makes her highly qualified to start and manage the proposed restaurant. Sally has strong leadership and people skills and has developed strong creative instincts, which she has often transformed into successful operations.

A.B.C., Inc. will supplement its employees' skills by using outside consultants in areas such as legal work, income tax preparation, insurance, and general business advising. The business was set up as a corporation primarily for liability reasons and makes it easier to secure investors. To continue operation, a mix of full-and part-time employees will be utilized to help in areas such as cooking, waiting on tables, and for labor. As the business grows, additional part-time or full-time employees may be added to handle the increased workload.


Wisconsin growth in families is the ninth greatest in the country. The past decade has seen this segment of the population grow by more than thirty percent. It is growing five and a half times as fast as the general population. This trend will also help our proposed venture.

The few existing car washes and restaurants that cater to our clientele are not nearly as convenient or service oriented as our operation. Nowhere else are these two types of operations combined on one site. Competitors seem to pay little attention to detail and seeing that the customer is satisfied. A.B.C., Inc. and its ownership will embrace the concept of trying to become a focal point for our clientele and never having a dissatisfied customer leave our property.

The timing for such a business is perfect. A significant window of opportunity exists for A.B.C., Inc. to take advantage of the huge growth of the area and start this kind of business. This business will be providing the "Right Service at the Right Time to the right clientele."


It is rare in today's world that a true market void exists. Our service will meet the "unfilled need" described above by providing customers with competitively priced, high service car wash and detailing facility combined with the services of a full-service restaurant on the premises. We will be unique to Madison area and indeed all of Wisconsin.

Customers will be attracted because of our atmosphere, pricing, and facilities. They will be made to feel welcome and as part of the family.

Some major advantages A.B.C., Inc. will have over potential competition and conventional car washes are:

  • Larger and newer facility
  • Lower operating expenses than most
  • Full service restaurant on site (new concept)
  • Location, location, location
  • We will offer carryout
  • We will offer limited liquor (beer and wine)



The market area we will concentrate on is central, northern, and western Madison. This area has been growing rapidly for the past several years and should continue for the foreseeable future. According to Inc. Magazine, Madison is ranked eleventh in the nation for start-up businesses. This means that the economic climate is extremely favorable for virtually any type of new business. In 1998, Madison recorded 5,414 start-up companies to its 400,000 population or 1.36 per 100 citizens. With Madison's exploding growth in population that has occurred during the last decade, local car wash sales should continue to be well in excess of national averages. Once the concept catches on locally, we feel the potential is unlimited. As we grow we will have the financial capacity to carry on an advertising campaign on a regional basis.

The economy is in the midst of a particularly strong growth period. Many new jobs are being added to the local community. Within a five-mile radius of A.B.C., Inc., 12,000 new homes are projected within the next few years. All of these factors are cause for a much greater need in car washes in the area. All of this activity can only help our attempts to begin this car wash.

Listed below are just some of the reasons that the Madison area is growing and why it is a good time to be running any kind of business that caters to this growth:

  • The local economy is booming and virtually busting at the seams.
  • More than 65 nationally based insurance companies are headquartered here. The largest is Allstate. It has over 1,200 employees) and an operating budget of over $85 million.
  • Madison has a new airport that should grow and attract even more new businesses.
  • The new Milwaukee Airport is open and provides an economic boost to the entire state, including Madison.
  • Gambling in nearby Baraboo continues to draw many visitors and some new businesses.
  • Every week, we see articles in the newspapers of Michigan residents and companies relocating here.
  • The world-renowned Four Seasons Hotel has completed an extensive remodeling.
  • MCI and Quantum Electronics are undergoing large increases in their operations here that should add many hundreds of employees.
  • Milwaukee is only 50 minutes away and is another good market for businesses in the area.
  • Many experts predict Madison to become the second fastest growing city in the state between now and the year 2007.
  • Dane County is predicted to become the largest county in the state by the year 2003.
  • The local economy is now more diversified than it was when troubles occurred in the local economy in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The estimated population of Dane County in 1999 is 500,000 people. The number of households are approaching 200,000. Currently, this market is growing at an annual rate of 3-5%. Projections see this trend continuing for the balance of this decade.

From the above figures it can readily be seen that the potential market for our services is huge. We feel with our pricing and value we will become a price and industry leader within two years.


Our surveys have shown the following potential mix of patrons for our facilities:

  • We will cater to both blue collar and white collar people
  • Income of typical customers is in the $20,000 and up range
  • Large numbers of young professionals
  • Wide range of age of clientele is 18-80
  • Large numbers of electronics workers in the various plants within a five-minute drive

Beyond the local market we could eventually tap into a more regional market. The advantage of our service is that it could appeal to all segments of the community. By expanding the role of the restaurant, we can continue to become an even greater focal point for the local community.

We feel we will have strengths in product features, management, operations, quality of service, product mix, company policies, reliability, desirability, highly trained sales force, pricing, location, and facilities.

We will have low risk exposure in the areas of industry maturity, market, dependence upon other companies, vulnerability to substitutes, technology, inflation/interest rates, regulatory environment, management ability, location, facilities, and suppliers.

We perceive medium risk exposure in competitive position (we are new) suppliers, finance, and planning. We have retained the services of specialists to help in various areas such as marketing, accounting, legal, and general overall business operation advice.

We do not feel we have any high-risk exposure situations or major inherent weaknesses.



Our intention is to raise the public's awareness of our company. We plan to review our prices and those of our competitors every six months. We will review direct material costs, direct labor costs, and total overhead expenses. We will continually monitor the cost of providing our service to each customer.

Numerous package deals may be offered to customers. Examples of various marketing strategies we may try include the following:

  • Discounts for larger or repeat purchases

We will offer continuous promotional rates. The results sell themselves. We will offer discounts to frequent users. The more a customer uses our services the cheaper it will become for them.

We will also be a MasterCard and Visa charge card merchant which enables us to more readily service our customers.

In order to sell our facility we shall consider a variety of promotions including:

  • Reserve certain hours or sections of the restaurant for unique groups such as children's birthday parties, senior citizens, service clubs, adults, etc.
  • Conduct special theme nights, use ethnic holidays, family night, charity promotion night, classes, etc.
  • Cultivate local churches and women's organizations for the restaurant.
