There’s something of a rush for clean cars in Polk County this spring — and it doesn’t have much to do with all that pollen.
In both Rockmart and Cedartown, independent car wash companies are close to opening.
The newest player is a Zippy’s Car Wash from Triple C. Development Inc. Stalled a bit by the winter rain, the car wash is now fully shaped in front of the Walmart and adjacent to Zaxby’s on U.S. 27 in Cedartown. The The project was approved by the Cedartown City Commission back in November, says city spokeswoman Aimee Madden.
In Rockmart, FastTrac Car Wash is about four to six weeks away. Motorists on U.S. 278 have watched it rises in recent months, stationed betweejn Chick-fil-A and Martin’s Restaurant at 1464 Chattahoochee Drive. It is part of a metro Atlanta group that promises a clean vehicle in three minutes as well as free vacuums. Fast Trac currently has stores in Marietta and Smyrna, both open from 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. seven days a week.

Georgia Trend talks with local development officials about ‘productive partnerships’ in our region. The April edition of the state business magazine includes a major breakout on development around the state.  Among those quoted in the “northwest” section are Melinda Lemmon, executive director of the Cartersville-Bartow County Department of Economic Development, and Ken Wright, the Rome Floyd Chamber’s director of business and industry services.  Lemmon tells of recent growth in the community, including Loloi Inc’s nearly 200 new jobs and the latest growth by Toyo Tire ($138 million expansion). Wright discusses local interest in the new inland port, especially from Lowe’s. Also interviewed: Representatives from Gordon and Polk counties. For more.
