New Business to Offer Car Washes, Pizza and Politics

The car wash will serve snacks and pizza downstairs, and a dose of politics upstairs.

The Palm Avenue Car Wash is expected to finish construction and open in May, owner Mark Kravis said.

Outside canopies will be set up for people to vaccum their cars and for detail work to be done.

Downstairs in a large lobby there will be a place to buy snacks and some lounge space where you can wait while your car is being cleaned. There will also be a pizza shop with dough made fresh daily, and a buy a large pizza get a free express car wash deal.

After a while, Kravis plans to install a video game at the windows where people watch their car being washed.

"What's going to be really cool is you can shoot the cars with video arcade style triggers and foam buttons. There's a lot of things going on," he said.

Upstairs there are two offices, storage space and a conference room where Kravis will run the car wash and his car wash supply business MKI Products.

Up until now, Kravis has been in the business of supplying the equipment necessary to build car washes.

The office space will also be used to continue Kravis' efforts to help promote and organize the Reform Party of California.

The national Reform Party was founded in 1995 by a group including then presidential candidate H. Ross Perot.

Currently the Reform Party of California's treasurer, Kravis said his hope is to put more Reform Party candidates on the ballot in order to elect honest people.

"No more liars," he said.

Interested parties can apply for about 30 part- and full-time positions in the next two weeks, Kravis said.

Hopefully they'll do a better job than All American.. AA used to do a really good job, but the past couple of times I've had soap spotting and they put armor-all on my dash after I specifically told them NOT to. I've had to go all the way out to Vista Palms in Chula Vista (who does an excellent hand wash for $25!)

If they use the guy who used to run the all American car wash in Chula vista they will be out of business in no time. All that guy did was preach religion and try to pick up women. Maybe if he spent more time washing cars properly that place would still be in business. What a jerk

Kenny are you serious, that guy would be fired in 5 minutes. Get in here and find out for yourself
Mark Kravis July 06, 2012 at 06:28 PM

Mark, The first time I brought my wife's new Honda in when I got home the floor mats were loose, they had not secured them back on their fasteners. I may try again but this was a real put off after the toyota mess with the floor mats
