Police gets a minty offer
If you drive near Palm Beach and are overtaken by a nice and shiny police car, chances are high the officers just paid a visit to a Mint Eco Car Wash. In celebration of National Police Week, the American car wash company will be offering free washes for police vehicles.
To date, Mint Eco has washed over 500 police cars across many police departments in the county, including the West Palm Beach Police Department, the Jupiter Police Department and the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
“While we will never be able to repay the men and women of the police forces who protect us every day, our free carwash for police vehicles program is a small step in the right direction”, says Geoffrey Jervis, co-founder and CEO of Mint Eco. “Ever since we founded Mint Eco in 2019, we have offered support for the police force that patrols the neighborhood within which we have a carwash. The principle is simple, ‘If you wear Kevlar for me, we will wash your car for free.’ Today, we are making the program permanent for any municipality within which we do business.”
A closer look at the free wash program states that Mint Eco Car Wash will provide a free car wash to any police vehicle from a municipality within which Mint Eco has a car wash. They currently operate car washes in West Palm Beach and Jupiter.
Mint Eco plans to have a carwash in every municipality in Palm Beach County and will extend this offer as it grows.
“Here at Mint Eco, we know better than anyone that maintaining a large fleet of vehicles in top condition starts with keeping them clean,” says Shannon Hunihan, chief marketing officer for Mint Eco. “What we also know, from listening to friends of Mint Eco, is that it is often hard for an officer to find a clean, safe spot to make a stop while on patrol to use the restroom or refill a water bottle. We want our local law enforcement to know that they are always welcome to stop by.”
