We recently completed an exciting new Tommy Wash project on Cicero Avenue in Chicago, near the Midway airport. The new wash, “Buddy Bear Car Wash”, is a renovation project done by owner Phil Degerato, who converted the facility from a dilapidated wash to a beautiful redone fully automated express wash with auto tellers and self loading transporter belt.

  • Self loading entrance.
  • DRB XPT auto teller system.
  • Tommy’s patented stainless steel round applicator arches.
