Plano, TX (November 7, 2023)— ZIPS Car Wash ( will offer a FREE Premier car wash to all United States veterans and active military personnel this Saturday, November 11, Veterans Day. Veterans can visit any participating ZIPS location and enter wash code 1123 to redeem the offer on Saturday at over 280 participating locations across the country.

“On Veterans Day, and always, it’s important for us to recognize and elevate the service these men and women have provided to our country and the sacrifices they have made for our freedom on the day set aside to honor them,” said Gene Dinkens, CEO, ZIPS Car Wash. “We want to say thank you to each and every veteran and active military personnel and we’re continuing to extend our support efforts beyond just this one day by strengthening our local partnerships with veterans service organizations,” he added.

ZIPS has focused its charitable efforts on those who have served our country by offering free washes for over 10 years on Veterans Day, and over the last 2 years, has donated $20,000 to local and national veterans service organizations. Within the last week, ZIPS has donated a total of $3,000 to the following organizations to support their unique efforts to improve the quality of life for veterans:
