Sparkles on Cars and Sprinkles on Cones: Michigan Business
owners giving away their Car Wash & Ice Cream Store

Hillsdale, MI (MMD Newswire) May 6, 2009 — An uncertain economy
brings out the creativity in business owners… it means entrepreneurs
need to find interesting new ways to start their businesses, and
unusual new ways to make their businesses succeed. A Michigan
family has built up a pair of successful businesses over the last 15
years with the Vanity Car Wash and Ice Cream store in Hillsdale.
And now in a creative twist, they’re looking to simply hand the keys
to their businesses over to a lucky new owner.

If you’ve always wanted to own your own business, if you have an
interest in helping customers put a sparkle on their car or some
sprinkles on their cone, this could be your “golden” opportunity to
make your dreams come true.

The owners of these two established businesses, located together
across from the County Fairgrounds in Hillsdale Michigan, are
currently selling 6,000 numbered sets of “Express Keys” for $100.00
each. The electronic keys can be used by the key-holder to get
$100.00 worth of car washes and vacuuming services at the

A sparkling clean car might be incentive enough to buy in to the
promotion… but as an added bonus, with each set of keys
purchased, the purchaser’s name is entered into a drawing. In May
of 2010, or when all 6,000 key sets have been sold, (whichever
comes first) the owners will randomly choose a key number… and
simply hand over to that key-holder the ownership of the Vanity Car
Wash, with its three self-serve bays, one touchless automatic bay,
the adjoining takeout ice cream store, and all their inventory. The
businesses will then belong to the new owner, who can choose to
run the businesses, sell the businesses, or whatever they wish.

If you want an opportunity to own these established businesses, you
can purchase your set of keys or find out more by stopping in the
store located at 214 S. Broad St. in Hillsdale, or by visiting their
website at:

Ha, that’s pretty creative! I’ve always liked Hillsdale. I think I’m going to have to invest $100 in an entry!
