Franklin, TN-based MILES Express, a MILES brand, is expanding into Colorado with two locations slated to open in 2019. MILES currently operates three car wash locations — a full-service Auto Spa and two express washes in Middle Tennessee.
Construction will begin immediately on the first new MILES Express, located in Colorado Springs on the northeast corner of Constitution Avenue and Marksheffel Road. MILES Express is a premium, fast-care concept providing customers with optimal auto cleaning in a swift timeframe. The expansion in Colorado results from a licensing agreement with Denver-based investors, Greg Post, Keith Leimbach, and Dr. Christian McCarter.
Each MILES Express location will provide advanced exterior car wash services in addition to complimentary self-serve vacuums; towels for wheels, body, and windows; as well as cleaning chemicals for customers seeking a more detailed self-service experience. With a 130-foot-long wash tunnel, advanced chemical applications, and state-of-the-art soft cloth equipment, every auto receives a deep clean in a short amount of time.
The Colorado Springs location is the first branded license turnkey expansion for MILES. Licensing includes financing through First Advantage Bank and the use of Turtle Wax chemicals. The location will feature all-new, state-of-the-art car wash equipment from Motor City Washworks and will boast a building from ModernWash with an all-glass exterior, providing onlookers with a clear view of the MILES experience.
The first of its kind, this licensing agreement is an industry breakthrough that equips investors with the tools needed to operate the business post launch. A licensed location will receive full reporting utilizing a DRB Systems platform, and accounting and operational payroll management provided by MILES. These operational services, in addition to website and social media marketing, make this model unprecedented.
MILES began in Tennessee in 2007, when Miles Johnson, a former telecommunications executive turned entrepreneur, opened his first full-service Auto Spa. Since then, MILES has continued to evolve with two additional express washes, unique by design with Buff & Shine dryers and baskets of cleaning products provided at no additional charge to customers in the MILES Club program.
