Press Release: Lawrence Brad Thornquist: Industrial Engineer for 25 Years, Local Car Wash Owner at 50
After 25 years of eliminating waste and increasing value in manufacturing as an Industrial Engineer, Lawrence Brad Thornquist finally decided to quit his job in order to pursue a long-time dream: become an entrepreneur.
But for Brad, not any business will do. He wanted a business that will match his needs and those of his community. He wanted one that will not only generate profits, but also provide jobs for the people in his community while keeping the environment safe.
“I was looking for a new challenge, something that would serve the community directly, that would give me the ability to create many jobs, and allow everyone part of this company to have a healthy home, work and church life,” Brad says.
So he did his research. After looking into eight business opportunities and exploring his options, he decided to have a local car wash and chose DetailXPerts.
To Brad, family and friends are important. This humble servant leader adores his wife and two daughters, values his church family and several veteran friends. They are his greatest support at times of hardship.
DetailXPerts’ family culture matches his values
He says, “DetailXPerts is a family business, from the newest member in a franchise location to the President of the company. We are one family, ethically based, good people who are eager to go beyond to help meet any need you may have. It is an honor to be part of such a blessed endeavor.”
Support from the DetailXPerts Franchise Systems team, according to him, was spot on and timely. All his needs were addressed promptly. As soon as he became part of the DetailXPerts family, a personal professional coach was assigned to him and guided him in the beginning of his franchise journey.
His Weakness, His Customers’ Gain
Brad says he has a weakness: he always strives for perfection. People often hear him say, “Good enough isn’t.” He struggles when a vehicle is not made the cleanest and most sanitized it can be, regardless of the level of service requested.
To customers, Brad’s “weakness” becomes an advantage. They can be assured of superiorly clean and shiny vehicles outside and sanitized inside. This translates to a safe and germ-free ride all the time.
“I am fully committed to making DetailXPerts of Houston Northeast your home for meeting your vehicle cleaning needs. I keep my eyes and ears engaged in making this the best detailing company to work for in the USA.”
Aside from car wash and auto detailing, this local car wash will be offering hand car wash, interior car detailing, fleet wash, truck wash, mobile truck washing, semi truck cleaning, truck washouts and other car and truck washing services in Houston, Spring and Humble. They are equipped with trained professionals who took seminar sessions on eco-friendly mechanisms and proper handling of car cleanliness issues.
