Anna’s Car & Dog Wash opens on Legacy Circle

Anna’s Car & Dog Wash is the newest business to open in the growing Elizabeth West area. The business at 2332 Legacy Circle is the first of its kind in Elbert County, offering a variety of services for both vehicles and furry friends. The new addition to Elizabeth opened its doors on Dec. 26.
Anna’s Car & Dog Wash is owned by Elizabeth-area residents Danielle and Rob Kinney. Not a franchise or chain business, the new car and dog wash is exclusive to Elizabeth and is completely family-owned and operated. The Kinneys named the business after their daughter, Anna. She can be found loading cars in the wash tunnel right along with her parents.
“Owning a car wash has been Rob’s dream for about 15 years. We researched car washes for years before taking the plunge into owning one,” said Danielle Kinney in an email correspondence from Jan. 2. “We moved to Elizabeth seven years ago and were surprised that there wasn’t a car wash like ours here yet. The combination of dirt roads and snowy winters left our cars with a wintry mix we could never seem to get ahead of.”
Anna’s Car & Dog Wash has a 100-foot, state-of-the-art tunnel that offers four levels of car washes ranging from $9 to $18. Monthly plans are also available at $35 a month. The tunnel was designed with Elizabeth residents in mind and can accommodate larger vehicles, including dual rear-wheel “dually” trucks. Vacuums, microfiber towels and glass cleaner are available free of charge.
Anna’s Car & Dog Wash also had a dog-washing station equipped with two types of shampoo, a conditioner, and two settings for blow drying. Free dog treats and water-proof aprons for both kids and adults are available for use.
“We have a great Dane who is difficult to bathe at home but gets very muddy with all the snowfall in the winter,” said Kinney. “Adding the dog wash seemed like something we, and our neighbors, could all use. So far, it’s a hit.”
The Kinney family is passionate about their involvement with the Elizabeth community and aims to maintain a local feel for their business.
“As a locally-owned and operated small business, we want to support our community and local schools. Some of our employees are football and baseball players at Elizabeth High School,” said Kinney. “We also plan to work with the Elizabeth Stampede and we welcome other businesses to partner up with us as we go forward. Our hope is to bring the community closer by organizing fundraising opportunities as well.”
On Dec. 31, Anna’s Car & Dog Wash held a fundraiser to benefit the Elizabeth High School Spirit Team. Ten members of EHS Spirit were present, clad in their warm winter jumpsuits, big red bows and glittery pom-poms. They greeted cars and dogs as they came through.
The EHS Spirit Team raised $250 at the fundraising event. The money will go toward training, paying for new uniforms and competition fees.
