Our Story

Team Blue® was founded by father and son “car guys” quest of creating the perfect car wash. My son, Jason, and I would always wash our nice cars in the driveway because we did not trust automated car washes to give our cars the tender-loving-care or the quality wash our cars needed. We knew if we created a car wash that was good enough for “car guys” like us, it would be a car wash good enough for everyone.

I began my entrepreneurship career in my early 20’s, when 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 was excited to be accountable and in business for myself.

In six years as a franchisor, we grew the Bubba’s Breakaway chain to more than 20 franchised units across the Mid-Atlantic States. I say “we” because I learned quickly that you couldn’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 Bubba’s Breakaway business to a venture capital firm and over the years started several other restaurant businesses, both as a franchisee and as an independent operator.

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 the Cardinal team that won a Pac-10 championship and earned a #1 national ranking in the 2003/04 season. He learned first-hand the value of teamwork to reach a common goal.

We opened our first Team Blue® Hand Car Wash in our hometown of State College, PA in 2008. 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.

Throughout our organization there’s a rare TEAM Spirit that wants to build our
Team Blue® Hand Car Wash & Detail into the first national car wash brand.
