On a history note: Paradise Drive used to be home to Paradise Auto Wash. Owner Doug Pesch had a five-bay car wash at 715 W. Paradise Drive. Pesch bought the property in 1996 with a couple other partners and sold the house and garage on the property for $1. That house was moved to Alpine Road and later that year Pesch built the five-bay carwash. In 2013 Associated Bank bought the property for $1.15 million.

It was July 11, 2015, when a single-bay car wash at the Shell station on Paradise Drive was approved by the West Bend Plan Commission. The Osowski family owned the station. The car wash would have “the newest technology.” It will be both touch less and soft touch. The customer will choose the type of service at the carwash kiosk.
