Shammy’s Car Wash Has A Strong Connection To Maine
We tracked down a co-owner of the company.
And he is the connection to the state of Maine.
Jon Young lives in the Dallas - Fort Worth, Texas area. He has since he was a one-year-old. But he has a connection to Maine. He’s a Mainer. He was born in Bangor. He lived in Old Town as a baby until his parents, and therefore he, moved to Texas in 1979.
But he still has a love for Maine, and his family has a home on Pushaw Lake.
So, it makes perfect sense that as he and his partners expand their business, Maine is a part of the future.
And the first 2 Shammy’s Car Wash locations announced recently for Bangor and Brewer are only the beginning.
The expectation is that they will own and operate 6 to 8 locations in Maine and in New Hampshire. The discussions are underway now for their first New Hampshire location.
That is a lot of car washes.
But it’s nice that it is being done by a guy who may have moved away from Maine when he was only one year old, but he still considers himself a Mainer.
Back to the Bangor and Brewer locations. Construction at both locations is expected to begin within 60 days.
And once the process begins it’ll take 5 to 6 months until they are open and operating.
Meaning the timeline says construction begins in early May, and the first cars will be washed in September or October of this year.
