Helping to make our community and our world
a better place - one car wash at a time.
Sudsy's has the privilege to serve in four distinct ways:
We serve our guests.
We serve our team.
We serve our community.
We serve our world.
we're not in the car wash business
As much as we LOVE a clean car, our first commitment is to people. Our mission is that every guest "Drive Clean. Drive Happy". One of our favorite quotes in our team training is from Maya Angelou, who said,
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Our purpose is about PEOPLE, and how we make them FEEL.
It is incredibly important to us that you feel valued and important at Sudsy's and we have to demonstrate that through how we treat you. If you're ever dissatisfied or have a question or a concern, please do us the honor of letting us know so we can work to resolve it. You can talk to a manager on site, click here to fill out a customer experience form, or click here to contact us. We look forward to doing whatever we can to make sure you know how valued you are.
The customer is #2
The Sudsy's philosophy is that when we treat our team as a priority, then they in turn provide exemplary service to our guests and treat them as a priority. This includes every member - rookie and veteran - receiving competitive wages, bonus plans, clear communication about vision, strategy and day-to-day tasks, stellar technical and customer experience training, the best resources and tools to do their job well, and dignity & respect. In our experience, when our team is treated as #1, each of our guests reap the full benefits of a stellar Sudsy's experience.
We don't have to... we get to!!!
Since opening in 2009, we have partnered with some amazing organizations and individuals who are doing some remarkable things in our community. We’ve helped raise money and awareness for organizations like the American Red Cross, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, The Well, Rotary Club, Pay-It-Forward Festival, Special Kids, American Cancer Society, Alzheimer’s Association, Shoes for Orphan Souls, Greenhouse Ministries, Child Advocacy Center, Renewed Life Ministries, Nashville Rescue Mission, Area Chamber of Commerce, and so many others (click here to see a more complete list.) We've sponsored area Little League Teams every year we’ve been open and have helped raise money for many of the area schools. We offer FREE car washes to all moms on Mother’s Day, all dads on Father’s Day and all veterans on Veteran’s Days and we contribute gift cards, gift baskets and free washes to non-profit organizations for their golf tournaments, silent auctions and charity events.
Nothing gives us greater joy than giving back the community who has given us so much. "To whom much has been given, much is required." We've been blessed so that we can bless others.
Sudsy’s offers several programs that organizations can use to raise money, from selling wash vouchers, to charity event packages. Let us know how we can help.
Making a Splash around the world!
In 2017, we had a life changing revelation within our company. The average garden hose driveway car wash uses about 80 gallons of water per wash. Sudsy's Car Wash only uses an average of about 23 gallons per wash. That's a savings of about 57 gallons of water for every car washed at Sudsy's instead of in a driveway (not to mention the devastating environmental impact of a driveway wash ...but that's another story you can read about later by clicking here.)
We began to imagine "what if" we could somehow connect the dots between the amount of water we save and the global water crisis? The numbers are devastating (source: https://www.compassion.com/donate-water.htm):
every fifteen seconds, a child dies from a water related disease
children die every day from easily preventable diseases
percent of the world’s population does not have access to proper sanitation
Sudsy's made a commitment to donate a portion of our proceeds every year to help provide clean water for life to the most vulnerable people around the world! From our 2017 proceeds, we made a donation to Compassion International that will provide safe, clean drinking water to 50 families for life! We can't wait to see what we can do together in 2018!
