Lake Mary, FL, November 19, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Lake Mary Car Wash will host its grand reopening celebration on Saturday, November 22, from 10AM – 2PM at 3720 Lake Emma Rd. Managing Partner Tony Schissel will announce the renaming of Lake Mary Car Wash to Top Dog Express Car Wash & Oil Change and commence the celebration with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11AM.
Locally owned and operated since 1997, Lake Mary Car Wash saw exponential growth with the opening of its two sister stores Top Dog Express Car Wash & Oil Change in Sanford and Melbourne in 2008 and 2009. To adhere to cohesive marketing and improved customer experience, owners Chad Ibbotson and Tony Schissel decided to merge Lake Mary Car Wash under the Top Dog Express name. Additionally, this will include branding the oil change facility as a Mobil™ 1 Motor Oil provider.
“We are thrilled to present this enhanced opportunity to our customers and the Central Florida public,” says Schissel. “By merging Lake Mary Car Wash under the Top Dog Express name, we’re able to offer our customers the convenience and benefits of more locations under the same name, and ourselves the ability to continue a cohesive branding growth.”
The grand reopening celebration is free to the public and will include catering from various local restaurants, raffle prizes, participation by various Lake Mary businesses and appearances from the Lake Mary Police Department K9 Unit and the Lake Mary Fire Department.
