Case Study:
Car Pool with Every Door Direct Mail®


Car Pool was started in 1977 when a local Richmond, Virginia-based businessman purchased a car wash location within the city. Finding this to be a successful venture, he purchased additional car wash locations. Today, Car Pool, LLC successfully operates eight locations with 250 employees, throughout the Greater Richmond area.

Car Pool’s philosophy is centered on four key factors: courtesy, speed, quality, and value. The company communicates this philosophy through marketing channels and on-location interactions with customers

“The mailers have accounted for about 18% to 20% of our total sales volume, and we are seeing that about 33% are new customers. We are happy with the results. We have been able to send targeted offers to certain neighborhoods in order to drive business to specific car wash locations.”

(Alex Cordero, CFO of Car Pool, LLC)
