Going to Danny’s family car wash is a cultural phenomenon. It’s become the place to be for people in the know. The first time I went to Danny’s I was convinced the mob ran the place – it’s impeccable, grand, and elaborate. Cars are washed through the carousel they have built. It just kind of has that mob feel. Guess I’ve watched too many Godfather movies. I did a little research on the place and it’s actually owned by Danny Hendon, an ex-cop from Detroit. There are a total of almost 30 Danny’s shops in the Phoenix area. He also owns Barcelona, one of the hottest nightclubs/restaurants in North Scottsdale. The man has it going on. His revenues are around $300 million/year.
