(Updated at 3:30 p.m.) A car wash site on Route 7 in Tysons is ready to roll with a fresh coat of paint and a new company in charge.

Mr Wash Car Wash began operating at 8218 Leesburg Pike on Thursday (Dec. 7), replacing the long-standing Champion Hand Car Wash. To celebrate the opening, the facility is providing free car washes through Sunday, Dec. 17.

“We’re thrilled to serve the Tysons Corner community,” Evan Harris, executive vice president of Mr Wash Car Wash, said in a statement. “As a family-owned business, we’re dedicated to delivering a top-tier car wash experience, creating meaningful job opportunities, and fostering impactful partnerships within our communities.”

When announcing the opening, Mr Wash noted that customers on its unlimited membership plan “automatically have access to all locations.”

Unlimited members get one vehicle wash a day for a monthly payment.

The Tysons center is Mr Wash’s 11th location overall and its fourth in Fairfax County, joining sites in Merrifield, Bailey’s Crossroads and Centreville. Aside from one Delaware car wash, the business is concentrated in the D.C. area, with facilities in Alexandria, Arlington and Maryland.

Construction on the Tysons car wash began in July, according to Scott-Long Construction, which says in a press release that its team overhauled a “previously dilapidated structure.”

Based on its Yelp page, Champion Car Wash had occupied the site since at least 2007, but it appears to have closed around October 2021. The business provided auto detailing in addition to cleanings.

The existing structures were demolished to make way for the 4,703-square-foot Mr Wash facility, per Fairfax County permits. Construction finished on Dec. 1, Scott-Long Construction said.

“We are thrilled to have been involved with the planning and execution of this new state of the art car wash in the heart of Tysons,” Scott-Long CEO John Scott said in the press release.

Mr Wash is adjacent to an office building that’s co-located with Reston Hospital Center’s Tysons emergency room, which opened in June 2022.
