CHEYENNE – John Agnew has been in the car wash business for more than 30 years, first working at his family’s facility in high school.
“I’ve been in the business since 1985,” he said. “It is the only business our family is in. We’re totally dedicated to the car wash business.”
Next summer, as president of Breeze Thru Car Wash, Agnew will celebrate the company’s second location in Cheyenne.
The first Cheyenne Breeze Thru opened at 2106 Dell Range Blvd. in 2010, and provides express exterior and flex-service car wash packages.
First founded in 2007 in Fort Collins, Colorado, the company serves northern Colorado and southern Wyoming.
The $3 million project, expected to be larger than the first, will be on the south side of East Pershing Boulevard between Ridge Road and McCann Avenue, and construction will likely wrap up in summer 2019.
Plans to build a third location along South Greeley Highway are on hold for now.
“There was a need for a second location because of the volume of business that we do on Dell Range,” Agnew said.
Breeze Thru owners expect to employ 10 to 12 people locally at the new location. It will be the company’s 10th site in the region.
