Super Sonic Express Car Wash opened its fourth location at 500 Highway 12 East in Starkville next to Shipley's Do-Nuts.

The new location opened for business on July 3.

"What we offer is four locations now of Super Sonic Express Car Washes, so we are located where everybody is at," Co-Owner and Operation Manager Caleb Box said. "We have multiple locations to service multiple areas."

Super Sonic Car Wash is also located at 813 Highway 12 West in Starkville, and 2209 Highway 45 North and 235 Alabama St., both in Columbus.

Box said the decision was made to open thesecond Starkville location to make convenient car washed more accessible to customers.

"We started hearing customer say that they had a hard time getting in on busy days, and the traffic made it inconvenient to come down there at times," Box said. "We want to put ourselves in areas that allow customers to get in and out conveniently and easily."

Box said washes range from $7 to $20, and free vacuums and towel service are included with every wash.

Customers pull up to a car wash stall and put their car in neutral, Box said, and the carwash will pull the vehicle through the carwashwhile the customer waits in the vehicle.

"When you're finished going through the carwash, you have the opportunity to vacuum your car out," Box said. "We also offer towel service. We loan you the towels for free, and you can dry your vehicle off then return the towels."

Box said the lot for Super Sonic Express Car Wash takes up right under an acre, and each location employs four to six people, but the company may expand to up to eight employees at each location.

According to Box, the new Super Sonic Express Car Wash has been a success since it opened last month.

"We've seen an uptick in volume, and customers seem to be very pleased with where we're located," Box said. "We are hearing a lot of good feedback, and that the second location is more accessible to them."
