SURPRISE, Ariz. -- With 10 Shell-branded gasoline pumps, a tunnel wash, quick lube, window tinting, convenience store, Dunkin Donuts and more, the Cobblestone Auto Spa & Market has something for everyone.

On the Tuesday morning of our CRU14 visit, a steady stream of cars pulled into the car wash, the car owners relaxing in large leather chairs in a lounge area complete with flat-screen TVs set to news, sports and overviews of the car wash tunnel itself.

The car wash/c-store chain was opening its 10th location this week with an 11th to come in March and more on the horizon.

Our busload of tourists was impressed by the front-and-center placement of the Dunkin Donuts counter, making it clear to all who enter that this site believes in foodservice as a traffic driver.

Other standout elements included several large merchandise displays, including a wall of Rockstar energy drinks that formed the American flag (See slide show below) and a mini football field promoting Anheuser Busch products, and a soap shooting range that lets customers fire soap at their vehicle as it goes through the car wash.
