The Bixby Knolls Car Wash Center is the Biggest in Long Beach and the Detail Center is the Largest in the entire area. The car wash has been owned by the same owners, Shell and Sheldon Grossman, since 1977.

Sheldon began in the carwash business in 1966 (49 years ago) when he purchased his first carwash. He then proceeded to buy and build 3 more. In 1977 he and his new bride, Shell Whitney Grossman, purchased #5 and renamed it Bixby Knolls Car Wash. Within the next year they decided to sell off the others and devote their full attention to making Bixby Knolls Car Wash flourish. In short order they added 6 bays of self-service washing on the east side of the property. Then they added a Detail Center, and Express Exterior washing.

The Grossmans make a great team.  Together they have been very active in many community endeavors as well as related business associations.
