Appleseed Car Wash Innovates Retail Fundraising

Need to raise cash fast for a worthy cause?  The weekend car wash is a tried and true method.  It always works.  Why not then, have a fixed car wash business in a busy retail district raising cash for worthy causes 100% of the time? How about putting it right next to a Walmart?

That’s exactly the concept behind the Appleseed Car Wash Express, recently opened at 6020 Fry Road in Katy, TX.  I had a chance to interview Brett Sheldon, founder of the Appleseed Group, on video. Drawing inspiration from parenting his own children, Brett explains his motivation behind the concept and how he is putting his 25 years of experience in retail real estate to work to benefit not just a worthy cause but a multitude of worthy causes. It was the Grand Opening of the business and our interview was loudly interrupted by Appleseed’s very first customer!

I found his ideas blending for-profit Main Street savvy with non-profit fortitude and heart to be highly innovative and intriguing. Each month, three distinct non-profits will compete for $10,000 in cash generated by the car wash business. For the inaugural first month, the Krause Children’s Center is privileged to be one of the first three!

So here’s one way you can get your car washed, help us win October, and raise money for the kids at the Krause Center!
