We Love Helping Businesses that Help the Environment...

Which is why we were ecstatic to help fund Gleam Car Wash!

With Gleam, customers get a sustainable car wash in a variety of ways. First, only 15 gallons of fresh water per car is used compared to an average of 80 to 140 gallons when you wash at home or at a hand wash facility. Secondly, Gleam acts as a mini water treatment plant, reclaiming almost 100% of all their water and uses solar energy to power various aspects of their business like heating water and turning on LED lights. Through the SBA 504 loan program, Josh Peebles of Collegiate Peaks Bank and Colorado Lending Source partnered to help refinance an existing loan that Gleam used to purchase the business’ property. The funds also helped with construction costs and equipment purchases. All of this has been crucial in helping Gleam succeed as an environmentally friendly neighborhood car wash.
