Every Business Has A Story
Alex Lemmen, CEO of Tommy's Express, holds up a grainy photo to prove he started early in the business founded by the Essenburg family of Holland, Michigan. "IT'S A BOY," says the sign outside the Quality Car Wash managed by his father in 1990, when gas was $1.31 a gallon. "That's me!" Lemmen said.
But Tommy's goes back much further, to 1969, when brothers Jun and Sonny Essenburg opened their first Quality Car Wash. "They were partners in life, did everything together," says Ryan Essenburg, Jun's grandson, president of Tommy's Express, and the person who pushed hardest to franchise, starting in 2016. "They always told stories of the Great Depression. It helped sculpt today. He taught us to be conservative, be careful, and be cautious."

The Tommy’s Express record is over 230 cars per hour!!! Wow!
