A new Missouri-based business that offers a unique twist on a typically arduous chore is expanding into Arkansas. McBee’s Coffee N Carwash, a car wash with a coffee shop inside, will soon open two new locations in Central Arkansas, in North Little Rock at 4315 McCain Blvd. and at 159 South Broadview Street in Greenbrier.
McBee’s is a luxury car wash that sells coffee, offers free vacuums and has a dog washing station, and also guarantees a wash in under three minutes. The concept reportedly came from the idea that a car wash could provide customers with their morning or afternoon cup of joe in addition to a high-quality car wash, adding something unique that customers would come back to enjoy.
McBee’s is family-owned, with Galyna Saltkovska serving as operations manager. The company has three locations in its hometown of Kansas City, Missouri, and several more currently under construction including the two in Central Arkansas.
The North Little Rock location was originally slated to open in Feb. 2022, then at the beginning of this month, with the Greenbrier site scheduled for mid-summer. McBee’s owners cited delays due to harsh weather impacting construction, and no recent updates on opening schedules were immediately available.
Saltskovska told sources the process for opening these businesses usually take a while due to finding lots with adequate capacity as well as obtaining additional food and beverage serving permits. Illinois-based Car Wash Pro Designers provided design for the new locations.
