Grand Opening includes Event Honoring Make-A-Wish

AAA Carolinas opened its first car wash – Fins – in Greenville, South Carolina late July.


Fins Car Wash is an automatic car wash focused on providing fast and remarkable washes. It differs from other car washes because of its state-of-the-art, low-stress loading system that eases and enhances motorists’ car wash experience. It is also equipped with heated blowers, which have been proven to be the most effective method of drying vehicles. Fins Car Wash is in the process of opening multiple locations across the Carolinas and Greenville was its first.


“We are very pleased with the look and feel of our first Fins location,” said Greg Ries, Senior Vice President of Fins. “The Greenville community has welcomed us with open arms and we are so excited to begin this journey in a city as wonderful and vibrant as Greenville.

The car wash is open to members and non-members alike, but members receive a discount.


To usher in the new facility and to give back to the community while doing so, Fins held a charity event called Washes for Wishes. For one entire weekend top washes were given out for free to everyone who drove through and customers were able to donate to Make-A-Wish South Carolina in return.


The three-day event raised $7,400 for the local charity.

Of the donation, Amanda Osborne, VP of Mission Advancement of Make-A-Wish South Carolina said, ““We are so pleased about this exciting new partnership with Fins Car Wash and AAA.  Their generous support of Make-A-Wish South Carolina’s important mission to create life-changing wishes for kids who need it is meaningful and considerable. Wishes require community partners to be granted. The staff at Fins Car Wash have been so enthusiastic about this partnership and the impact they can help make for local families that it’s been very inspiring to work with them. We thank their staff and associates, and supportive guests who prove that our community is dedicated to improving the lives of the courageous children facing critical illnesses.”


For those of you near the Greenville area, stop in to check us out. For the rest of you, we hope to bring a Fins location to you sometime soon!
