A shiny car can blind potential carjackers just long enough to distract them while you steal their bikes. Thwart thieves with today's Groupon: for $8, you get an Ultimate car wash at Malbon Bros. Car Wash in Virginia Beach.
Malbon Bros. Car Wash massages steel bodies during soft-touch cleanses that leave exteriors spotless and the environment smiling. The 4–5 minute process Ultimate car wash takes place within the mysterious interior of an automatic drive-thru bay, a structure that transforms cars from dingy to sparkling as swiftly as the sun turns ice cream back into a warm cow. The soft-touch system employs eco-friendly soaps and less water than touchless washes, and it doesn’t require the energy-consuming task of heating water. Though it's not included in this Groupon, waiting drivers can sink their teeth into tangy barbecue from the on-site Malbon Bros. barbecue restaurant. On future visits, car wash purchasers can also enjoy a $.20/gallon discount on gasoline at the Malbon Bros. Corner Mart.
Malbon Bros. Corner Mart
With flavors as unique as its business model, Malbon Bros. Corner Mart complements eco-friendly, soft-touch car washes with family barbecue recipes developed on the Malbon family farm in 1923. A wall-size pig mural splashed across the eatery's façade announces a spread of pulled pork and ribs that make mouths water from behind a classic red-tiled counter. Breakfast items, creamy slaw, and a duo of signature sauces segue into the offerings supplied by a fully stocked convenience store nearby.
As the other draw at Malbon Bros.Corner Mart, car-wash bays peek out from a crimson-framed glass structure containing twirling red and blue brushes designed to knock away road grime with minimal water use. The brushes' gentle taps work in tandem with a Blue Coral Beyond Green program, which ensures contaminant-free cleanings, and Rain-X solutions, which repel the outpourings of emotional clouds from glass surfaces.
