Southington Auto Wash & Quick Lube was first purchased by Steve Krawczyk and his father in 1983.

After four decades of family ownership, Southington Auto Wash & Quick Lube of Southington, Connecticut, has been sold for $1.1 million, reports CT Insider.

Located at 254 Queen St., the shop sits on a road with much retail business. It was first purchased by Steve Krawczyk and his father in 1983, with a new facility being built in 1988.

It started as a single bay car wash before the father and son added more bays, expanding their services to include detailing, oil changes, fluid replenishment, tire rotations, and other routine maintenance jobs.

The shop was purchased by Paol Realty Co, which according to town records is based in Mount Kisco, New York. Registration papers submitted for an LLC called Queen Street Car Wash this past January list as prinicpals Andrew Kwon of Mount Kisco, and Ernesto Longo of Briarcliff Manor, New York–the latter of which has also been listed as principal of a car wash in Ridgefield, Connecticut.

The sale of Southington Auto Wash & Quick Lube is the third from Queen Street to occur in the past six months. This past December, $500,000 was spent by a Dallas investment firm to open a Firestone Complete Auto Care just up the road from Southington Auto Wash & Quick Lube.
