Photo by Fresno Chamber AmbassadorsSurf Thru Express Car Wash will open its fourth location in the Valley this summer with a new building in Clovis valued at about $600,000.

The new car wash will be located at 596 W. Shaw Ave. and will be open for business by late July or early August.

“There are a lot of people and a lot of traffic within a mile of the location, with fantastic access and visibility,” said Todd Gall, co-owner for Surf Thru.

The car wash will create 16 new jobs, including about four or five full-time positions.

The company currently operates a location in Fresno, Clovis and Visalia that Gall indicated were all doing very well, allowing for the expansion.

The new building will look very similar to the company’s current location at 1421 Herndon Ave. in Clovis.

The contractor for the building is Pickett & Sons Construction, Inc. and the architect is Vermeltfoort Architects.
