water reclamation systemAs an investor, there are many sustainable companies to invest in. From renewable energy technology to green transportation, options abound. 

But if you’re searching for franchise opportunities with companies that invest in sustainability, the pool shrinks considerably.  

The world’s most innovative and sustainable car wash is ready for you—choose Tommy’s Express Car Wash. We're revolutionizing the car wash industry. 

Sustainable practices are important to us. We’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint with innovative business operations. It’s part of our mission to add value to the communities we serve, and we take it seriously.  

Check out the following purposeful ways we’re tackling sustainability to see if we’re the best investment fit for you.

Custom water reclaim system

Our water reclamation system helps reuse some water for certain wash functions.  

The system features large underground tanks to filter suspended sediment, provide ozone treatments, and powerful cyclonic separators during the final purification stage. 

Our water reclamation system uses Rotating Bed Biofilm Reactor (RBBR) technology to dramatically reduce its overall water consumption without sacrificing performance or wash quality. 

In fact, the technology allows the wash to reclaim up to 90% of the water used to wash each car—up to 40% more than industry standard. 

Overall, we can produce more than 100 gallons of usable water each minute, allowing us to perform the same cleaning while drawing in much less fresh or city water overall. 

Limited water usage

Each Tommy’s Express is fully stocked with high-efficiency water-saving equipment and is designed to dispose of used water in a responsible manner.  

All the water used at Tommy’s Express is safely routed through a local sanitary sewer to a water treatment plant, where it can be purified. 

This system pairs well with Tommy’s Express’s already low water consumption, due to our highly efficient and targeted wash equipment.  

From Presoak to Tire Shine, our wash products have been formulated to complement each other and work quickly at very precise dilution ratios on each arch. This means we can still clean cars from top to bottom while using less water and running our conveyors faster.  

By using booster pumps and specialized nozzles we can greatly increase our water pressure, providing high-intensity and close cleaning while greatly reducing overall water consumption.  

Partnership with Water Mission

When our company was founded, we knew we wanted to give back.

With every single wash at Tommy’s Express, we donate to Water Mission.   

Water Mission is a nonprofit Christian engineering organization that designs, builds, and implements safe water, sanitation, and hygiene solutions for people in developing countries and disaster areas.

Since 2001, Water Mission has used innovative technology and engineering expertise to provide access to safe water for more than 7 million people in 57 countries.   

Notably, Charity Navigator has awarded Water Mission its top four-star rating 15 years in a row, a distinction shared by only 1% of the charities rated by the organization.
