It's a blast, and it's been a blast!

Founded in 2009 by Joe and Janet Russell, Rocket Express has grown from one small business idea into what is now five fully operating mega car wash locations. And what a journey it’s been! Joe a native Idahoan and Janet a native Californian teamed together to create what are the longest, fastest and best equipped car washes in the United States. Honing in on their unique backgrounds in commercial real estate, marketing and operations, Joe and Janet are proud to have created a business that provides opportunity for the community, is earth friendly and most of all delivers an enjoyable and cost effective experience for every one of their customers!

Janet and Joe have been credited with introducing, to the car wash industry, the very first Members Only Express Lane for Unlimited Car Wash Club. Since that time, Express Lanes have been adopted by car washes throughout America, which has revolutionized the exterior car wash model.

The formula that Joe and Janet, along with their exceptional management team have created and refined is appreciated by Rocket Express’s loyal customer base. This great appreciation has resulted in the Rocket Express mega washes becoming some of the very highest volume car washes in all of America.
