After intense research, Gleam Car Wash was born. Gleam opened in the fall of 2016. Since then, Gleam has created over 40 jobs, cleaned hundreds of thousands of vehicles, and strives to produce the highest quality car wash, with the greenest possible infrastructure and the most inclusive possible hiring practices, in all of Colorado and beyond. Approximately 20 percent of Gleam employees have an intellectual or developmental disability (IDD). The remaining Gleam employees are all on a spectrum of some sort, because aren’t we all, and comprise high schoolers, college students, professional detailers and car washers of all ages.
Gleam takes environmental stewardship seriously. Both Gleam and our second location, Gleam II, have 41 kW of solar on their tunnel rooftops, which are designed to have the optimal pitch for solar energy generation. Motors have VFDs, LED lighting dominates, and waste streams are seriously monitored – each car wash recycles and composts.
Gleam staff is dedicated to providing top notch car washing service, providing everything from simple exterior car washes to the highest end detailing. Emilie runs Gleam Car Wash alongside Eiljah Williams, a serial entrepreneur who can literally fix anything, and Matthew Weston, a detail veteran who has run teams detailing everything from hundred million dollar planes down to Datsuns headed to auction. The entire team is proud of contributing to our community and protecting our environment.
The Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, in recognition of our commitment to limiting our impact on the planet, awarded Gleam Car Wash the Green Business of the Year in 2018. And although we already treat 90% of our water, offer recycling and compost, and generate our own energy, there’s still more to be done! Thank you for supporting our dream!
