Propose At Soapy Joe’s For A Chance To Win Wedding Rings And $10K

Ok, we had never heard of anyone proposing at a car wash before…but apparently Soapy Joe’s Car Wash is for lovers! ❤️

The always creative San Diego car wash chain, known for fun events like the car wash karaoke competition and the Guinness World Record-holding World’s Largest Air Freshener, announced that it is reprising its award-winning Tunnel of Love event with a pandemic-friendly spin. This year, they are inviting couples to “Propose at Soapy Joe’s,” share, and win big.

Drive-thru on your way to ‘I-do’!

“It was incredibly rewarding to bring together ten couples to wed last year at our Imperial Beach location,” said Anne Mauler, VP of Marketing. “We know COVID-19 has derailed a lot of wedding plans – one survey even reported that 63% of engaged couples put off their wedding in 2020 and it’s likely that many more delayed engagement. But we think nothing should stand in the way of true love, so we’re encouraging everyone who’s in love to come and ‘drive-thru on their way to I-do’. Plus, they could win wedding rings from San Diego’s own Honey Jewelry Co. and $10,000. Not a bad way to start an engagement!”
