Today’s blog is about a locally owned business at 8320 Wornall Rd: Big Splash Car Wash. The business is under new ownership and recently celebrated a grand ‘reopening’.
Claire Cunningham and her husband Jason own several of these car washes around the KC area—other locations include Overland Park, Westport and a new site opening in Grandview this Fall. Claire explains the design of the property is for “easy in and easy out to get your car washed. There are three entrance lanes including a special lane for members only”. Drivers stay in the vehicle as it goes through the wash, and free DIY vacuums are available. The car wash is designed to service up to 150 cars an hour (!!). I used the wash a couple of weeks ago and was finished up, including vacuuming my car interior, within 20 minutes.
At Big Splash, you can stop in for a one time wash or purchase a membership and they have several packages available. I did a quick run through called the “Splash ‘N Dash” for $8, which washed the outside with a jet dry. The machines did a pretty good job for the price of the wash.
One thing to note if you want to try Big Splash: the never ending road construction along this part of Wornall can make it tricky to find the entrance to the business. It’s been frustrating for the owners! So be aware of the road blockage and work vehicles as you get closer to the location. Big Splash is located on the west side of Wornall, near McDonald’s.
Big Splash Car Wash is a good alternative to the total self-service wash farther north on Wornall at 74th St, and less expensive than the full service Waterway on State Line Road. Stop in and try it—support our locally owned Waldo businesses!
