MEDINA –– Salt- and mud-covered vehicles can get a free cleaning this weekend as Sgt. Clean’s Car Wash will mark the grand opening of its fifth location in Medina with a free car wash promotion.
According to the National Weather Service, this weekend’s weather of sunny to partly sunny skies will bode well for any motorist looking to take advantage of the no-cost service.
Owner Brian Krusz said the expansion in Medina is a first for Medina County.
“We started in Strongsville and then we have Westlake, Parma, and Massillon and then here,” Krusz said Friday shortly after cutting the ribbon at the new business. “I’ve always loved the city. I’ve always wanted to be a part of the city.”
Krusz had his first experience in Medina when he served as a U.S. Marine Corps. recruiter.
His office used to be right next door to the building that now houses the car wash. His venture into the carwashing business was piqued when he attended a car wash convention in Atlantic City. He said he was hooked every since.
“I’ve been an entrepreneur for a while. I fell in love with this industry by the people, I love people,” he said.
“This is an opportunity where I get to touch the lives of many different people and it really appealed to me. The opportunity came up and this became available and we jumped on the opportunity.”
Krusz got the building, which was owned by another car wash beforehand, Oct. 5. He then took the last two months to rebrand and renovate the property.
Sgt’ Clean’s Car Wash will offer free car washes through the weekend to celebrate the new location.
