Team Blue Hand Car Wash & Detail


Team Blue is a solid semi-absentee business model that provides 100% hand wash & detail services. No automated equipment. No conveyors. There is no expensive tunnel equipment to buy or maintain. The initial investment is approximately 75% LESS than a typical full-service automated tunnel car wash. The keep-it-simple operational systems are professional and more eco-friendly.

Team Blue provides services to an UN-SERVED Marketplace of customers that currently only wash their vehicles at home because they won't use automated car washes AND to customers that only use automated car washes because they have no other choice AND to displaced customers as the car wash industry continues to move toward more automation, fewer employees, and less customer service.

The Team Blue Franchise Founder Program provides significant financial incentives to a limited number of pioneering individuals that open single or multi-unit franchises. Incentives include reduced royalties and an opportunity to earn recurring monthly income by sharing in a Royalty Pool of .25% of System-Wide Gross Sales.

Marketplace Differentiators:
1. Initial investment 75% less than a typical full-service tunnel wash
2. Significant competitive advantages over a more automated-less-service industry
3. Recurring Revenue Monthly Membership Model
4. It is different...first franchise of its type in local markets
