The new Ahwatukee Auto Spa, at 4601 E. Chandler Blvd., is open for business and is hoping to become a one-stop shop for Ahwatukee Foothills residents for drinks, snacks, gas and a car wash.
When the gas station at the corner of Chandler Boulevard and 46th Street closed down the new owner, Maurice Khoury, decided it was time to expand. Khoury has five other gas stations across the Valley, including one in Sun City with a car wash. The model has worked so well he decided to bring a car wash to the station in Ahwatukee.
A new top-of-the-line automatic car wash was built onto the building with vacuum stations set up outside as well.
Inside the station, which has been completely remodeled, has a freestyle soda machine with more than 50 different flavors, over 30 flavors of ice cream with toppings, hot dogs, sandwiches, snow cones and beer on tap. The station will host a grand opening May 8-10 with events for kids, product representatives on hand and specials on car washes.
