Drive & Shine to Open in Former Restaurant Building

Feb. 24, 2023

A "long-vacant building" that was once home to a sports bar in Stevensville, Michigan will now be home to a new Drive & Shine Car Wash and Oil Change.

Feb. 24, 2023–A new Drive & Shine Car Wash and Oil Change will be opening a new location in a “long-vacant building” in Stevensville, Michigan, 94.9 WSJM reports.

The building along I-94 at 5000 Red Arrow Highway was previously where a “Former 5 O’Clock Sports Bar and Restaurant” was operated. The restaurant was also called “Win Schuler’s” in prior years.

Drive & Shine is based in Granger, Indiana, and has “about a dozen” locations across northern Indiana and southwestern Michigan. The closest one to their new Stevensville location would be in Niles, Michigan, which Drive & Shine VP of Marketing Sherry Tehrani said the new facility will be modeled after.

Construction on the Stevensville location does not currently have a clear timetable, with Tehrani saying permits for construction are “pending approval,” but hopes to receive the OK “sometime this year.” The existing structure is “overgrown and derelict” and will be demolished to create a new one.

Lincoln Township Building Official Jim Pfeifer said that the township has not received any plans and that the facility will need a “special use permit.” Pfeifer added he did not expect any problems once the plans are reviewed, however.
