Ground cleared in Luling for new car wash

A Hammond businessman plans to open an Express Clean Car Wash in Luling.

Owner Johnny Schillace said a permit has been approved and land purchased for the site, which he anticipates could be up and running by spring 2020.

“We’re an expanding and growing company,” Schillace said. “We started in Hammond by remodeling a [car] wash and just bought a second one in Hammond. We expanded into LaPlace on Belle Terre Boulevard and started looking in Luling.”

The location, 12401 Highway 90, neighbors Mariano’s Italian Eatery in Luling.

Schillace said he anticipates the Luling location will complement his LaPlace car wash, particularly with the availability of buying a monthly unlimited wash pass that allows a customer to use any of his locations.

With permit approval, Luling will make his fourth location.

“I liked where it was … the accessibility,” Schillace said of considering several site options. “The divided highway had a turn lane there so I just thought it would work.”
