Rain Tunnel Express Car Wash opens new location in Pontoon Beach, Illinois

St. Louis, MO – St. Louis-based Rain Tunnel Express Car Wash has now opened its third Illinois location at 4192 State Route 162 in Pontoon Beach. This facility marks the opening of the sixth Rain Tunnel Express Car Wash operation in the St. Louis Metro Bi-State Area.

After establishing its first location in Granite City in 1995, Rain Tunnel Express has grown to become one of the largest car wash operations in the St. Louis area. Other Illinois facilities are located in Edwardsville, the new location in Pontoon Beach, as well as Missouri facilities in Sappington, Sunset Hills, and South County (Tesson Ferry). 

“Illinois is where we started and our locations there have consistently done very well over the years,” says President and Owner Scott Knight. “We expect this new facility to be a great addition and look forward to offering our high-quality, high-value services to yet another great community in the Metro Area.”

With the new location, Rain Tunnel Express is now ranked among the top 50 car wash operations in the nation, and now employs more than 60 workers in both Missouri and Illinois. “How do we continue to grow, even flourish, in these trying economic times?” Mr. Knight continued, “It’s really very simple… if you have a car, three minutes and five dollars, then any Rain Tunnel Express location will give you a high quality wash that will keep you coming back. Quality, safety, value, convenience and fantastic customer service—this is what keeps our customers coming back and allows us to offer a great place to work for dozens of area employees.”

Established in 1995, Rain Tunnel Express offers high-quality car wash services at six locations throughout the St. Louis Metro Bi-State area. Our advanced automated car-wash technology is constantly updated to provide the safest, gentlest, most effective and environmentally-friendly system for protecting our customer’s investments, as well as the local ecosystem.
