What We Learned at The Car Wash Show

The leadership team from COR3 Design is back from the Nashville Car Wash Show and ready to put our new inspiration and knowledge into practice.

As a leading partner for car wash brands looking to design, build, or renovate, we had five key takeaways from our time immersed in the future of the industry:

  1. When it comes to trends, customer experience is number one. Car wash operators are looking to build on the entertainment and convenience factor for their customers, adding more flashing lights and a “wow” factor to keep it fun.
  2. Technology is the name of the game. One of our favorite inventions was the mat washer specifically designed for molded mats. We had only seen or heard of mat washers for flat non-rubber mats. The future is clearly looking cleaner!
  3. Our favorite exhibit was the AVW Equipment Company booth. It included a Tesla Cyber Truck as part of the display.
  4. Our favorite take-home swag? We loved receiving a tape measure with a built-in mini screwdriver–as a company always looking for useful branded giveaways, this was a highlight.
  5. We knew this before, but we love this industry. It is always innovating, breaking barriers, and creating new ways to do the job better. Here’s to 10 new partnerships hopefully underway and many more to come!

    We are excited to continue to grow our Car Services division. If you or someone you know is looking for architectural design support on their car wash or oil change facilities, we would relish the opportunity to partner together.
