The ModWash Car Wash Blackwood-Clementon Road which has been under development in Gloucester Township is now OPEN.
Also expected to open in 2023 for that same area are a new Wawa, Giant Fitness and Jersey Girl Fitness centers, and Honey Grove Medical Cannabis Dispensary.
The location of the new ModWash car wash is at 1310 Blackwood-Clementon Road, in Gloucester Township.
It is situated next to the Favorites off-track betting property, and directly across from the closed Friendly’s, which is under full remodel to become a dispensary.
Most recently the ModWash property was home to a doctor’s office, and before that a Nifty Fifties restaurant.
Access to the new Blackwood-Clementon car wash is directly from Blackwood-Clementon Road, as well as the rear access road which is called Plaza Drive.
The new ModWash automatic car wash is basically an exact copy of the locations already open in Turnersville, Cross Keys Road, Cherry Hill, Vineland and Millville… which most people are now familiar with.
Another area ModWash car wash is under development on Cross Keys Rd (a second) at the New Brooklyn-Erial Road intersection.
We first wrote about plans for this restaurant about 18 months ago when they were scheduled to appear before the Gloucester Township Planning Board.
ModWash Car Wash
The new ModWash car wash features all of the latest car wash technology.
It is an automated system where you pay at a digital kiosk, and drive into the car wash building/tunnel.
While the kiosk process is self-service, typically an employee is there to help guide you through the prompts… and also inform you of membership benefits.
The car wash offers a variety of features which can vary per car wash options you choose.
- Wheel Bright
- Triple Foam Conditioner
- Rain Repellent
- Tire Shine
- ModGuard Under Carriage
- ModCeramics Protection
- ModShine 4-step Fusion
All aspects of the car washing process at ModWash are automated. They believe their technology will fully clean and dry your car.
Vacuuming though is handled by the car owner and at ModWash they offer a large number of sophisticated vacuum stations, which are included in the cost of the car wash.
The overhead placement of the vacuum hoses makes it easy to access all parts of your car. And they even offer floor mat holders to make it easier to vacuum them.
You can purchase individual car washes($10 and up) but like many companies in this space, they are also offering monthly plans which allow unlimited car washes for the month. Check with ModWash for details.
The ModWash company was started by Chattanooga TN construction firm Hutton.
Hutton’s core business is to build commercial buildings for other companies.
With significant experience in the commercial development process, CEO Karen Hutton decided to start their own car wash brand
They have an aggressive goal of opening up 100 locations in just a few short years
Blackwood-Clementon Road is a New Business Hot Spot
It’s going to be a busy 2023 for the rest of the year as there are several more business openings expected on Blackwood-Clementon Road, particularly in this immediate area of the new ModWash.
Directly next to ModWash is a closed Pizza Hut building that is simply up for rent or sale. At this time nothing is planned for it.
But on the far side of the Pizza Hut will be a large “Super” Wawa which is significantly developed and should see a grand opening later this summer.
The Wawa location is where the stand-alone Entenmann’s retail store and distribution facility was located. (Entenmann’s Retail has relocated up the road to the former K-Mart center) 42Freeway June 3rd
Directly across the street from ModWash a new medical dispensary going in called HoneyGrove, taking over the former Friendly’s restaurant building. Construction crews have been working there for many weeks now, repainting and remodeling the building ahead of the dispensary opening. 42Freeway Dec 30, 2022
The large shopping center behind that Friendly’s building is slated to become a dual Giant Fitness and Jersey Girl fitness centers. Each of the two fitness gyms will have separate spaces. June 9, 2020
That Fitness property will also include several health and fitness related retail stores. The signage is now up on the front of the building, as well as the large signage along the roadway. This opening has been delayed a bit from its original plans but it’s likely to also see opening in 2023.
And within the last six weeks or so a new Rita’s Water Ice location opened a little further down the road at the corner of Laurel Rd. This freestanding building replaces the one which was located where the upcoming Wawa is being developed. The new Rita’s features a drive-thru! 42Freeway May 9
And still to come, likely in 2025… a brand new ShopRite store in the former K-Mart building! 42Freeway May 25
