Luxury Plano Car Wash Makes Trip Enjoyable!

1230_400_TradeMark Car Wash Lobby

Last week my business partner and I had the opportunity to visit and personally try out Plano’s newest luxury carwash; TradeMark.

Result: We are hooked!

You are immediately impressed when you enter the large, modern gallery-like lounge featuring a 40 foot wrap around bar, 7 large flat screen Tv’s and an impressive display of art by local artists.

My favorite part of this experience…..complimentary wine with their full-service wash! My business partner’s favorite part…his baby (pictured below) was never out of his site!


TradeMark Plano offers state of the art technology including dual 90 foot long, 15 foot wide detail (conveyor) belts.  Customers have an unobstructed view of their car as it’s detailed on the moving assembly line.


There is no doubt that both the customers and cars get pampered at the TradeMark Plano location. The quality of the car wash was extraordinary. It’s clear that Tom Miller, Owner and Operator of TradeMark takes great pride in the car wash business.   From the quality of soaps, personal attention and cool lounge this car wash is a MUST TRY. If you don’t want to take my word for it…check out there Yelp reviews.


If you notice your spouse is spending 3-4 hours at the car wash each weekend you will probably find him/her there enjoying a glass or wine or can of beer watching their favorite game.

Crudo – Great Frisco Restaurant

I have been going to Crudo for several years now and I am more impressed with every visit.  The quality of service and amazing cuisine makes this one of my favorite places to go.  They have a great happy hour offering $5.00 wine by the glass and $2.00 off their specialty  drinks. Crab cakes are by far my favorite! They melt in your mouth. Give it a try and if you sit at the bar ask for Suzanne or Mike…they will take great care of you.  Visit their website for menu options and more information.
