Bluebird Express Car Wash: From Teen Gig to a Growing Empire with Incredible Opportunities for Workers

Last updated June 28, 2021 by Totally Boise

John Michael Fery, Owner and Founder of Bluebird Express Car Wash, started a car detailing business at the early age of 16. Flash forward to January 2019, Fery opened the first Bluebird Car Wash with a third location three years later, in May of 2021! With the most recent locations established in Boise, Idaho, Bluebird Express Car Wash is here to offer the Treasure Valley the best wash quality, value, and fantastic job opportunities.

Idaho Adventure Driven Car Wash 

Fery’s father often asked him, "What do you want to do on a bluebird day?" That inspired the namesake of Bluebird Express Car Wash. The best way to start and finish every adventure is with a clean car, cue Bluebird Express Car Wash.

Being an adventure seeker himself, Fery started his mobile car detailing business as a teenager to afford him the opportunity to go to his favorite Idaho adventure destination—McCall. Business went so well that a year later, Fery hired his brother, and the rest is history! Being a young entrepreneur, Fery realized that he not only wanted a successful business, but he wanted to build an organization that valued employees and made a meaningful impact on their lives. Their mission is to change and challenge expectations, and that starts with how they treat their team.

They pride themselves on providing a clean and shine unlike any other wash in the Valley. Their team is constantly focused on making Bluebird Express Car Wash the best car wash in Boise.

Beyond the incredible proprietary systems and equipment advantage that Bluebird offers over its competition, their level of customer service easily sets them apart from the rest.
