With Park, "literally all you have to do is park your car. We take care of the rest and bring the car wash to your driveway," he said. The name Park resulted from this business model, as well as the fact that it started in the city of Menlo Park.
The pair began the business about two weeks ago, and this is their first attempt at starting a business. They say they are getting about seven to 10 requests per week, and hope that will continue to rise as word gets out.
They currently serve Menlo Park and Atherton, and hope to expand.
In the fall Mr. Randall will attend Santa Clara University and Mr. Freeman, University of Southern California. They hope to recruit high school and Stanford students to keep Park operating.
The business offers both interior and exterior cleaning, and charges $18 for an exterior wash on smaller cars and $24 for larger cars. Interior cleaning costs $8.
