The House That Mandel Built
‘Colorful' car-care pioneer shines at mammoth St. Louis wash.
Ask Lynn Coleman what makes the Gas House Express Car Wash such an interesting place to work, and she might start talking about goldfish.
“The police come in here a lot for free coffee or popcorn,” says Coleman, director of operations for the St. Louis-based car wash. “Every once in a while they’ll come in and give us a goldfish for the waterfall we have inside the store. The fish don’t last very long, but we appreciate them bringing us pets.”
