Madison, WI, July 16, 2004 - Suds it Up Car Wash plans to own and operate a 4,528 square foot car wash it will construct at 18 Eastpark Court in The American Center business park on Madison’s eastside near the junction of Interstate 90/94/39 and U.S.151. Suds it Up Car Wash is owned by Dale and Mitsy Endres of Middleton. Construction will begin in August and the car wash will be open for business in late October. A 2,160 square foot oil lube center will be added at a later date.
Suds it Up will provide customers in their vehicles with a ride through a 130 foot conveyor tunnel. Customers will pay for the type of wash they want at a drive up, touch screen auto cashier that accepts cash and credit cards. “In today’s convenience driven society, people expect high quality at the lowest price and they want it fast. That’s what we will provide for them,” said Endres. The wash bay will have the capacity to wash and dry the exteriors of seven cars at a time. There are six outdoor vacuum stations at the north end of the site.
Hours of operation will be 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. daily.
American Structures General is the contractor, Transcend Architects & Engineers is the architect and Bur Oak Designs is the landscape architect.

Over 6,000 employees, from 56 businesses work in the Park and there are numerous residences adjacent to The American Center,” said Endres. For more information contact Dale Endres at 608/ 833-1664.
