OpenShine, a new division of OpenRoad Group, broke ground for a Tommy's Express Car Wash location, the first franchise location for Canada.

Set for a summer 2025 opening, this is the first of four Tommy's Express Car Wash operations set to open in Ontario. The three additional locations are to be in St. Thomas, London, and Waterloo. 

“We are excited to be the first to bring Tommy’s Express Car Wash to Canada, starting in Ontario,” says Christian Tjia, operations manager, OpenShine. “Like our sister company OpenRoad Auto Group, who are leaders in the Canadian automotive retail industry, innovation, customer service, and community building is at the forefront of who we are at OpenShine. There is currently nothing quite like the upscale car wash service in Canada that Tommy’s Express Car Wash provides. There is a lot of potential, and we can’t wait for customers to get a first look very soon.”
