Have you ever wanted to open your own wash and lube facility? Check out this article. Look how much these two have invested in this business. Isn't that amazing? Almost $1,000,000 dollars? WOW. I wonder how long it will take them to make their money back after that investment.

2 Haven Women Car Wash Business Personal Touch - Two Winter Haven women say that with a bit of determination, a desire to help others, and a thriving lovebug population, a car wash business can go a long way. Shelly Phillips and Cindi Sanders know it's true for their business, Wash Me Car Wash & Lube Center. The two friends have invested almost $1 million in Wash Me, which includes $250,000 worth of state-of-the-art Ryko car wash equipment. It's used all over the country by all major oil companies, they say. Customers ride through on the conveyor as the machine does all the washing.

The investment was worth it, Sanders said. Since the equipment was added in September, Wash Me has had a 25 percent increase in sales.

If you had a million dollars would you invest in such a business?

Me personally...no. I would take half of the money and invest it, while I lived off the other half. Time I was done living off the other half, the other 1/2 million would be right back up to a million again

LOL I was thinking the same thing. I just couldn't see investing a million dollars into a car wash and a lube shop!

But who knows, maybe they are having the last laugh and the business is more profitable than any of us would have ever imagined.
