It’s been more than three years since the Applebees on Hamilton Boulevard was torn down, but now there’s another reason cars are backed up in that area.

The new Silverstar car wash has just opened where that restaurant used to be and they’ve been giving free car washes to celebrate.

Silverstar currently operates Rocket Auto Wash and has two sites currently under construction.

The Floyd Boulevard Silverstar will open in July and a South Sioux City location opens in September. Others are being built near Red Lobster and Sam’s Club.
