Business Beat: New car wash opens in South Point

December 6, 2018

SOUTH POINT — A new, fully automated car wash has opened in South Point, Ohio, across from Lowe’s called Five Star Car Wash.

“I invested about 1.6 million dollars in this business and I built it new,” said owner Scott Hutchison. “It’s a tunnel wash and everyone that uses the wash gets to use our vacuums for free.”

Hutchison says at Five Star it takes less than three minutes to wash a car.

“We also hand dry every car also,” he said.

Five Star Car Wash also offers a monthly pass.

“Our customers can purchase a pass that gives them unlimited use of car wash monthly,” Hutchison explained. “They can wash their car as many times as they want for a low price of $29.99 per month and they don’t even have to get out of their car for this service.”

The car wash is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.

For more information, visit the car wash at 45 County Road 120, visit its Facebook page or call 304-416-3704.

LITTLE WHITE CHURCH: Fowler Media Partners has announced the launch of The Little White Church, an all-digital music platform for southern gospel music to serve the Tri-State.

The broadcast-style digital station offers local news, weather and southern gospel music 24 hours a day. Listeners can listen on their PC, mobile device or with a free app.

“We wanted to give gospel music listeners a place where they can listen to this great music while keeping them informed, all while giving them a world class listening experience,” said Bryan Fowler of Fowler Media Partners.

Fowler says local artists are encouraged to send their music for a local show, and churches are encouraged to send their church and concert announcements through the website at www.mylittlewhitechurch.com, which is where folks can also listen.

Fowler has been involved in Tri-State radio since the mid-1990s and was the founder of the Walk FM brand and general manager for Joy FM and WEMM before starting his own company that now owns WPAY-FM and two stations just outside of Nashville, Tennessee.
