Small Business Spotlight: My New Car Wash - Long Beach, California

When Manson vehicles need good scrub in Long Beach, we know just where to take them. My New Car Wash, a small black-owned business, is a friendly place nearby the Manson Long Beach Yard. It is unique in that it’s a hand car wash, not a motorized car wash like we often see these days. The owner Leslie Jackson bought the car wash in 2019 and decided that he would prefer it to be run as a hand car wash. “It’s easier to deal with it when things break down and you don’t miss any work days,” Leslie explained.

Prior to purchasing the car wash, Leslie worked in an oil refinery for many years, and when he retired he wanted to invest in something that could take care of his family for years to come. Along with this investment, Leslie and his wife Dr. Francine Jackson, DDS also own a dental practice down the street, The Dental Salon.

Leslie says that My New Car Wash primarily washes Manson’s large trucks and vans. “The guys come in with large trucks and vans, drop them off, and go grab lunch down the street,” he says. “When they return the vehicle is all clean.”

Bob Davila, Manson Equipment Port Engineer, says that it is very convenient that the location is so close to the Manson Long Beach Yard, but he also finds Leslie very cordial. “He calls us up often to make sure that everything is ok and always asks us to let him know straight away if anything isn’t right,” Bob says. Leslie says the relationship with Manson over the last few years, which was inherited from the previous owners, has been a good one. “It reminds me of the good old days in the refinery,” he says.

My New Car Wash is located at 1500 W. Pacific Coast Hwy, Long Beach, CA 90810. Say hi to Leslie for us next time you swing by!
