Mr. Clean Car Wash: Poo-filled franchise systems will Not do

mrcleanRichard Solomon hit this nail right on the head, I think.

Jim Amos and Procter & Gamble put their heads together to make the Mr. Clean Car Wash franchisee.

Solomon calls it a FranWhack: an “investment” that will inevitably fail for the franchisee:

Not even the best cleaners and polishes put out by P&G can possibly spit shine this turd.

The economics of this carwash concept don’t compute, and the choice of franchise leadership is dreadful.

P&G has given birth to a FranWhack here. No one in his right mind should ever consider investing in this debacle in the making.

Everyone should follow these two threads over at Blue MauMau as the pundits ridicule this latest, Is-this-the-best-they-can-do franchise offering.

  1. Controversial Amos Leads P&G to Launch Mr. Clean Car Wash Franchise Nationwide, Don Sniegowski
  2. Can Proctor & Gamble Succeed with Jim Amos at the Helm?, W. Michael Garner

Solomon is not alone in his skepticism

I have never seen such unanimous condemnation. See: Paul Steinberg, Joel Libava, Nick Bibby, Michael Webster, Bob Frankman, Guest: Brice Food litigation, and me (On the road to The Tipping Point?).
