CAR WASH Magazine recently sat down with Glen Hiemstra, CEO and founder of Futurist.com to get his take on what the future might look like for the car wash industry.



Hiemstra calls himself a futurist and over his two-decade career as an expert on future trends he’s had a few big "told you so" moments.

And in 2006 — one full year before the financial crisis — he was explaining to audiences why the debt bubble would burst.

At Cruisers Car Wash in Northridge, Calif., the choice isn’t as simple as wash, wax or radiator fluid flush.
