How Was Fabulous Freddy’s Founded?
He visited another car wash in town and his experience was just terrible. Right then and there he knew his next venture was to open his own business and call it Fabulous Freddy’s Car Wash. How did Freddy come up with the name Fabulous Freddy’s? Well as a child all of his cousins called him Fabulous Freddy. It was his nickname and the name has stuck! In December of 1998 his dream came true when the doors opened on the first Fabulous Freddy’s at Ft. Apache and Charleston.
He opened Fabulous Freddy’s Car Wash knowing he could provide a fabulous experience to his employees and customers. Over the next ten years he would open additional stores across Las Vegas and Utah.
Next time you see Freddy in the stores be sure to give him a Fabulous Hello!
