Plano, TX (November 11, 2022)— ZIPS Car Wash ( will extend a free car wash to all United States veterans and active military personnel this Friday, November 11, Veterans Day. Veterans can visit any participating ZIPS location of its 275 express car washes and enter wash code 1122 to receive a free Works & Wow car wash on Friday. After their free wash, these honored guests are encouraged to detail their vehicle with ZIPS complimentary drying towels, surface cleaner, turbo vacs and compressed air to get their vehicle looking great inside and out.

“We are proud to serve Veterans and active military personnel on this very important day with a free car wash as we celebrate and honor those who have sacrificed for the betterment of others,” said Gene Dinkens, CEO, ZIPS Car Wash. “This is just one, small way that we can give back to the communities we serve, but we feel it’s important to recognize and elevate the service these men and women have provided to our country on the day set aside to honor them,” he added.
