Hello,

I'm in the process of moving to Wilburton Oklahoma from California and I'm considering starting up a mobile car wash/detailing business in the Wilburton/Mcalester area. Can anyone give any thoughts on how this type of business could do in that part of Oklahoma?

thank you

Have you looked at information about the area, demographics?

Wilburton is pretty small. You would need to tap into McAlister which is the largest city in the area but even its not all that big. Maybe you could find a way to get some business from the folks who come in to Lake Eufala just north of town? I'm sure there would be some people up there willing to pay for a nice cleaning/detailing of their boats or lake vehicles.

There is a vehicle detailing place in Poteau (east of Wilburton) and it appears to be doing exceptionally well. I believe they get a lot of business from the local area used car dealerships. That said, I can't recall there being a used car dealership in Wilburton, but McAlister has several. That would be a good potential customer base. Wilburton? Meh. The money will be in McAlister.

Agreed. OP needs to focus his energy on McAlister or Ada.
