Small time hustle against youth unemployment

In a country where unemployment is a serious issue, Themba Mabotha took it upon himself to open a car wash, in a small town in South-Africa. “I just want to see my age group off the streets”.

It took Themba Mabotha from Bendor in Polokwane nearly two years to save money and buy the proper equipment. But now CC The Hustle is open for business. Car wash business, that is. His new mobile wash is situated in the town of Polokwane, the capital of the province of Limpopo.

With the business, he created employment for the youth within his community. “Many graduates here struggle to find jobs in the field they studied for”, he told local news site Review Observer. “Most job opportunities require a qualification and not everyone can afford to go to school. To wash a car won’t be a hassle for most people and I just want to see my age group off the streets,” he added.

Jet wash and massage

No rollovers or tunnels for CC The Hustle. They use simple high pressure jet wash equipment from Kärcher. But hey, it beats buckets of water. And according to Mabotha “we are more affordable than our competition.”
They don’t just clean cars. No, they clean nearly everything if you ask them. On top of that, Hustle also does your plumbing and even supplies massage services!

In a business where it’s all about major take overs and the latest Istobal or WashTec equipment, this small story from South-Africa put a smile to our faces.
