November Business of the Month Boomerang Car Wash

The Sherwood Chamber of Commerce is proud to recognize its November Business of the Month Boomerang Car Wash Founded in 1995, the parent company of Boomerang Carwash® became a premier carwash company responsible for developing almost 100 “upscale” carwashes with cutting edge technologies on prime real estate. In 2004, the company began to develop express-exterior carwashes with bright colors and lots of pizzazz that would later become Boomerang Carwash®. In January of 2007, Drive Clean® became the principal owner and parent company of the Boomerang Carwash® brand and its locations; with plans of becoming a national chain. A new culture was born in Boomerang Carwash® once Drive Clean® came on board. Today, the company operates 26 Boomerang Carwash facilities in 6 states, of which 20 are company operated leased facilities and 6 are company operated franchise facilities. Boomerang Carwash has been in the forefront of innovation by being the first in the market to adopt technological features which are being widely accepted today. Boomerang Carwash offers the customer a value proposition built around speed, convenience, safety, quality, and price. Boomerang Carwash® is made for people on the GO! Only 3 minutes in and out; and FREE VACUUMS ALWAYS! For more information about Boomerang Carwash, visit You can also find them at their Sherwood location.
