St. Louis-based Rain Tunnel Express Car Wash has opened its fourth Illinois location at 12 Junction Drive West in Glen Carbon. This facility marks the opening of the seventh Rain Tunnel Express Car Wash operation in the St. Louis Metro Bi-State Area.
After establishing its first location in Granite City in 1995, Rain Tunnel Express has grown to become one of the largest car wash operations in the St. Louis area, and is now ranked among the top 45 car wash operators in the United States. Other Illinois facilities are located in Edwardsville and Pontoon Beach, as well as Missouri locations in Sappington, Sunset Hills, and on Tesson Ferry in South County.
“Illinois is where we started and our locations there have consistently done very well over the years,” says President and Owner Scott Knight. “With more than $200,000 in improvements, installing the most advanced cleaning technology from the A.V.W. Equipment Company and environmentally-friendly cleaning products from Kaady Chemical, we expect this new facility in Glen Carbon to be a great addition. We look forward to offering our high-quality, high-value services to yet another great community in the Metro Area.” The Glen Carbon location will also be the first Rain Tunnel Express to offer its customers free access to their high-quality, self-service vacuums.
“How do we continue to grow, even flourish, in these trying economic times?” Mr. Knight continued, “It’s really very simple… if you have a car, three minutes and six dollars, then any Rain Tunnel Express location will give you a high quality wash that will keep you coming back. Our quality, safety, value, convenience and fantastic customer service – all of this is what keeps our customers coming back and allows us to offer a great place to work for more than 70 area employees.”
Established in 1995, Rain Tunnel Express offers high-quality car wash services at seven locations throughout the St. Louis Metro Bi-State area. Our advanced technology is regularly updated to provide the safest, gentlest, most effective and environmentally-friendly automated car-washing system designed to protect our customer’s investments, as well as the local ecosystem.
