Crew Carwash to break ground on new facility in Merrillville

May 25, 2016
Crew Carwash, a long-standing Central Indiana carwash establishment, is set to break ground on its 29th location, bringing its advanced technology and award-winning customer service to residents of Merrillville. Scheduled to open this fall, the new facility is located at 501 W. 81st Ave. and will be the company’s first location in Northwest Indiana.
“We are excited to expand our footprint outside of Central Indiana and bring a world class carwash experience to the Merrillville community,” said Bill Dahm, CEO of Crew Carwash. “We only recruit the absolute best team members in the service industry, and it takes just one trip through our carwash to understand why our customers keep coming back.”
Featuring several new high-tech amenities, the state-of-the-art $4 million facility will provide customers with a more robust car cleaning experience and self-service dual hose vacuums will be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Merrillville location will also include new LED lighting inside and outside the carwash, advanced soap and detergent delivering technology and an environmentally conscious water reclamation system that cleans and reuses water during certain parts of the washing process.
In addition, the new Crew location will have an exclusive automated lane, allowing customers who have purchased the “Unlimited Washes” monthly plan to bypass traditional lines for a quicker, hassle-free experience. 
Crew is currently hiring for management positions as well as full- and part-time associates at the new Merrillville facility. Candidates should be passionate about delivering exceptional customer service and eager to gain future leadership skills.
