Ripon getting a Quick Quack car wash

Quick Quack Car Wash, shown here during its grand opening in Elk Grove, will be coming to the Ripon Save Mart Shopping Center.

Quick Quack is one of the fastest growing car wash chains in the nation.

“We started with one store in 2004 and, as of 2023, we have 190 stores,” said Quick Quack Car Wash owner Vance Shannon.

His request to construct a 3,496 square foot car wash at 1450 Brady Lane in the Save Mart Shopping Center was approved at Monday’s Ripon Planning Commission meeting.

Commissioners call this new addition a good fit for the city.

Plans call for Quick Quack Car Wash to be centered in the undeveloped portion of the parcel running parallel to Brady Lane.

The proposed project is on about 1.38 acres, consisting of 51 spaces of existing parking on-site and an additional 10 space in the car wash facility.

Quick Quack is an exterior-only, soft cloth car wash with locations in California, Texas, Colorado, Utah, and Arizona.

Shannon mentioned taking pride in his business being environmentally friendly by conserving and recycling water – Quick Quack’s reclaim system is said to use as little as 18 to 23 gallons of fresh water per car coupled with environmentally friendly shampoos that are water soluble and biodegradable.
