Westport is blessed with many community-minded local businesses. Topping any list is Westport Wash & Wax.
For 21 years, the Post Road car wash near Long Lots Road has exemplified the importance of local roots. The walls are covered with letters of thanks from charities, organizations and individuals who benefited from owners Scott and Laila Tiefenthaler’s generosity. No request was too small — or too large — for them to oblige.
Their employees have been great too. Hard-working, efficient, and always willing to go beyond, they sparkled just like our cars.
But not the Tiefenthalers are moving on. They say:
To all of our friends and patrons in Westport, Weston, Fairfield and surrounding communities:
After more than 20 years — since opening in 1999, –the time has come to move on to other endeavors.
Our business has been sold to Splash Car Wash. Rest assured, the same professional staff will provide the same friendly service you have come to expect at Westport Wash & Wax.
To our many faithful customers: Thank you for your continued patronage over the years. We have come to know many of you as friends, and hope to see you around town in the future.
We especially want to thank the managers and staff of Westport Wash & Wax for their hard work and positive attitudes that they bring to the job every day. Many of you have been with the company for 15 or 20 years. You are our brothers and sisters. You are family.
To our friends in the police and fire departments, EMS, public works and all the folks who help to make our towns safe and orderly: Thank you for your efforts. We are all fortunate to live in a beautiful part of the world.
Health and peace to everyone,
Scott and Laila Tiefenthaler
