Not just one but two quick-service car washes are coming to Kerrville in the coming months, thanks to a Lufkin-based chain.
Smitty's Car Wash will break ground in June at the site of the former Long John Silvers fish restaurant, 301 Sidney Baker South, and then break ground soon after at 800 Junction Highway — once home to the City Hall.
"Kerrville and the Hill Country were originally where we wanted to open our wash concept years ago," said Smitty's CEO Ken Sampson. "With the tremendous growth and fantastic
leadership from the local municipality, we're thrilled to be joining the community."
Smitty's Car Wash also plans to build facilities in Fredericksburg, several in East Texas and Montana. The car washes boast industry-leading amenities, including complimentary drying towels, window cleaner, free vacuums, pressurized air tools, and mat cleaners. Shade canopies will cover the 20 vacuum bays.
"Kerrville will be home to our new flagship locations," Sampson said. "We will be bringing our best here to show this area how we are more than just a car wash."
The 5,200 square-foot express car wash will offer daily wash specials and enrollment into a monthly membership club.
