Top Dog Express Car Wash & Oil Change is a family-owned and -operated business that has served the Central Florida area since 1997; most recently in Lake Mary, Sanford and Melbourne. Top Dog Express is a state of the art “flex” serve car wash. The term flex refers to the two service options available to customers. For example, the traditional full service car wash option places your vehicle in the skilled hands of the professional staff from start to finish. This option is ideal for those who appreciate interior vacuum service, wheel and window cleaning, bug removal, and hand applied tire shine. Conversely, the express customer may opt to vacuum his or her own car at the “FREE VAC’ station, for unlimited periods of time, following the completion of the exterior vehicle wash. Both options offer excellent service and quality in a timely fashion, thus representing the vision of TOP DOG EXPRESS.
In other words, this facility is designed to process large numbers of cars at high rates of speed with minimal wait times and ultimate levels of service and quality. Top Dog Express also features full service automotive detail and oil change facilities. Top Dog’s oil change department exemplifies the term express as the typical service times are approximately 10-15 minutes. Available services include basic oil changes, transmission services, air conditioning recharging, and a wide variety of other services that many erroneously believe are only available at car dealerships.
The name TOP DOG evolved out of the owners’ shared love of dogs, one being the yellow Labrador Retriever known as Oscar the Car Wash Dog, and the other Oscar’s cousin, Lucy, also a yellow Lab. Oscar had greeted customers and raised money for countless charitable causes at the Lake Mary Car Wash for over twelve years until his passing in 2014. In addition to Oscar’s philanthropic work, his likeness is portrayed within the Top Dog logo. Lucy continues Oscar’s lifetime legacy of work for the community and serving as the Top Dog ambassador.
The Sanford, Lake Mary, and Melbourne Top Dog Express locations were sold in October 2015, and the new location in Altamonte Springs opened in September of 2015. Additional locations are to open in Oviedo, fall of 2016 and Lake Nona in 2017!
