CAR WASH AND DETAIL CENTERS
Some of America’s most successful businesses were spawned from an existing or related business. Dave Thomas, a Kentucky Fried Chicken manager, founded Wendy’s because he couldn’t find a decent hamburger in Columbus, Ohio. Southern Pacific Railroad formed Sprint Telecommunications when it started laying phone wire along its railroad right-a-way. National Cash Register Company (NCR) just wouldn’t heed the futuristic advice of a young Thomas Watson, so he started a company called International Business Machines (IBM).
Such is the saga of Colorado-based Xtreme Clean, Inc. In 2003 Jay Gleeson was in his 7th year of running one of the nations top Real Estate Appraisal Firms. Business was great but Jay knew it couldn’t last for ever so he starting looking at businesses that he could touch and feel.
