A Note From The CEO
The TEAM Way.
I earned my degree in entrepreneurship from the school of hard knocks. In my early 20’s, I started Bubba’s Breakaway, a sub and cheesesteak delivery shop, with a small loan from a local bank and an even smaller loan from my mother. I had no idea how to prepare or understand a P & L, but I learned on the job because I wanted to be accountable and in business for myself.
In six years, we grew the chain to more than 20 franchised units across the Mid-Atlantic States. I say “we” because I learned on the job that you can’t be a successful franchise without a team of equally passionate people. I also learned that the rewards are much greater when it’s a team effort.
I eventually sold the franchised business to a venture capital firm and over the years started several other restaurant businesses.
My son, Jason, who was an outstanding student and basketball prodigy, earned a scholarship to Stanford University. He was twice an All Pac-10 Academic selection and played on a Cardinal team that won a Pac-10 championship and earned a #1 national ranking. He learned first-hand the value of teamwork to reach a common goal.
In 2006 my career took a wide turn. After graduating, he came home to work in our family’s architecture business. Sensing his entrepreneurial DNA, I challenged him to conceptualize a new stand-alone business that could be franchised on a national scale. His love of cars sparked an interest in a car wash concept that veered sharply from the traditional tunnel operations and self-service models.
In 2008, we opened our first Team Blue Hand Car Wash and Detail in our hometown of State College, PA. We named it “Team Blue” to honor the blue of the beloved Penn State Nittany Lions and for the life lessons and successes we’ve experienced being part of and leading teams.
Yes, Team Blue is a car wash franchise, but at its core, it’s a TEAM Business. Our recipe for success is our layers of teams: our three-person, in-bay teams that deliver TEAM Cleans, our franchise owners who manage and inspire their TEAM Customer Service, and our TEAM Home-Office that provides direction and offers TEAM Training and ongoing TEAM Support.
Throughout our organization there’s a rare TEAM Spirit that wants to build our Team Blue Hand Car Wash and Detail into the first national car wash brand. We’re excited. Working together, we’ll get there. And, we’ll celebrate together. That’s the TEAM Way.
