Lufkin car wash expanding services to man's best friend

Posted: Updated:
LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

When David Sanders decided it was time to renovate the K&D Car Wash, at Ted Trout Drive and the loop in Lufkin, he had an inspiration.

"I have a dog and he needs to be washed," said Sanders.

 With the support of his family, Sanders renovated a car wash bay and created the self service dog wash.

"I just thought it was neat. I really liked the concept, and no one else was doing it," said Sanders.

 With no advertising, Sanders got a surprise on the opening day thanks to his first customer.

"I don't even know how they knew I was open, but this woman came inside and said, 'This is awesome. I'm going to put this on facebook.' She immediately began to take pictures inside the wash and posted it that day. The next day or that afternoon, somebody came in and said I saw this on facebook and I wanted to give it a try," said Sanders.

Seven months later the business hasn't slowed down.

Sanders said he hasn't had any complaints, except for running out of soap early on.
