The Benny's Story
Since opening our first car wash location in 1951, we continue to employ the latest in automated car wash technology, from the use of electronic sensor technology to the chemistry and engineering of cleaning agents.
Over the years, our car care services have expanded to include detailing, oil changes, state inspections, along with B-Quik convenience stores and fueling stations. Our growth has not stopped! After seven decades of successful operations, we are proud to have 9 locations serving the Baton Rouge area. We are excited to announce the expansion of our Gonzales and Denham Springs locations as well as a new site in the works!
The times, the technology, and the cars have changed, but the values of this family-owned and operated establishment remain the same. We, along with our dedicated employees, look forward to serving you!
No matter what Benny’s service fits your needs, you’ll find we’re Cheaper, Faster, Better!™
We’re proud to be a part of WaterSavers
Prior to opening Benny’s Car, Truck, and Van Wash on Florida Street in Baton Rouge, we got our start at Pensacola Auto Wash in Pensacola, Florida. We owned this car wash until its sale in 2009, during which time Benny’s owned the oldest car washes in both Florida and Louisiana.
Benny’s second Baton Rouge car wash location on Plank Road can be seen in the 1982 movie The Toy with Richard Pryor.
Benny’s invented the “Modern Day Express Car Washing”, creating the concept of an all-inclusive car wash experience using an automated computer program. In 2001, the program was installed at our Perkins location and took 2 years to tweak and complete. Car Wash owners from six continents have visited Benny’s to see how we run, and the automatic express wash commonly seen just about everywhere started at Benny’s.
It takes 80-90 gallons of water to wash one car in the tunnel. Water is collected, treated, and recycled, using about 35gallons of fresh water. Washing your car at home uses an average of 20% more water. Every chemical used at Benny’s is biodegradable and all run-off is treated before entering the sewer system. Car wash solutions for home use are not always environmentally safe and are absorbed into the ground without being treated.
