Mister Car Wash is expanding corporate headquarters and looking to redevelop the office property on 416 N. 6th Ave to serve as a south campus.
“We ran the economic breakdown of it, and it works better to have a second corporate office as oppose to relocating headquarters altogether,” said John Lai, CEO of Mister Car Wash.
This will be the second time that Mister Car Wash has made a property reinvestment, the first being in 2014 when the company purchased and remodeled their current office on 222 E. 5th Street. More on the company’s past property investments can be found here.
The company’s application for financial cost reductions include both the GPLATT and Primary Job Incentive. Both applications were approved by Tucson’s mayor and council on Tuesday, Nov. 21, 2017. The 6.5 million dollar project fits all the requirements and is projected to bring 37 new corporate employees, all with a starting salary of $70,000.
“This is a good business model for how things are done. You have to look at it both ways– what you are adding to the city of Tucson, but what is the income of the working family that you have at the front lines. It’s important to strive for sustainable wages and health care benefits,” comments Regina Romero, representative of Ward One of Tucson City’s council.
