Autobell® Car Wash Inc., headquartered here, recently added a new market within its five-state territory, opening its first location in northern Virginia. The full-service car wash resides at 45655 Shepard Drive in Sterling, VA, in the former Sweetwater Splash Car Wash location. Lucas Farrants is the store manager.
The new location is the family-owned and -operated Autobell chain’s 77th store and its second in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, joining its Annapolis, MD, wash that opened last fall.

The new wash and all locations of Autobell are currently open 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Sunday.
