Tommy’s Express Car Wash – Dover, DE

Ames Construction was thrilled to build this Tommy’s Express on the site of the former Kirby & Holloway Family Restaurant in Dover Delaware. A leader in touchless car wash systems, Tommy’s Express will be a great asset to area residents. The new sign is a reworked version of the old iconic restaurant sign. Tommy’s also chose to add an interior mural of the previous sign as a nod to the history of the location.


We have to keep the customer at the forefront, so we have to make sure that we’re keeping our store clean, clutter free, and that everything we’re doing is safe. Working with Ames was Awesome! Our job foreman, Brian, he took that to heart, he made that his mission, to make sure that we didn’t have dust, he didn’t allow clutter. I would be in some mornings at 6:00 AM and there he was sweeping up after the guys to make sure the store was ready for the customers.
