Franchising Since: 2004

Address: Florida

Description: ProntoWash operates a unique car wash and detailing service ("Point of Service") via Mobile Detailing Units ("MDUs") and Detail Centers at designated locations.

Franchise Offer: ProntoWash offers two types of franchises— Retail Mall Facility and Corporate/other franchises. ProntoWash also develops Washing units for leasing to other companies, produce private labeled Karts for sales by other entities and are developing consumer direct cleaning products. ProntoWash enters agreements with malls, corporate facilities and parking lots to operate or let others operate mobile car wash and detail centers. ProntoWash expects most available corporate or mall locations for franchise will be contracted via national or regional agreements. Franchisee uses ProntoWash system to provide car wash/detailing services delivered in a mobile setting or via stationary Detail Centers that serve as a hub for operations.

Financial Assistance: The franchisor does not offer any other direct or indirect financing. However, if requested, the franchisor can refer the franchisee to third party lenders to provide financing. The franchisor does not finance any debt to a third party; guarantee note, lease or obligation. On a case by case basis, the franchisor may permit the franchisee to pay for equipment and other products purchased from him over time (i.e. over 90 days). The accounting manager makes a determination regarding the amount and the term of the financing and monthly payment.

Training and Assistance: The initial training will take 6 days for Retail Mall and Office Building/Other locations. For a conversion location, the initial training will consist of between 1 and 2 days of classroom training and between 1 and 2 days of training at the location. The fees for additional training beyond the initial training will range from $50 to $500 a day according to unit size and complexity.

Territory: The franchisee is granted a limited exclusive territory. While in full compliance with the agreements, the franchisor will not establish or let anyone else operate a ProntoWash Point of Service in the location or defined geographic area comprising Service Zone.

Term of Agreement and Renewal: The length of the franchise agreement is five years. Renewal or extension of the term is for an additional 5 years if the franchisee meets all conditions.

Obligations and Restrictions: The franchisee need not personally supervise the franchised business. If the franchisee decides not to manage the Point of Service on a full time basis, then a designated manager should perform the day-to-day on-premises management. The Manager must devote full time to manage the Point of Service, including being physically present during the days and hours.

Total Number of Units: 51 franchised outlets at the end of the year 2007.
