Wolfeboro Carwash & Executive Detail expansion
Construction is nearly complete at the Wolfeboro Carwash & Executive Detail’s new 1,536-square-foot detailing center and truck accessory showroom.
Located on Pine Street across the street from the carwash at Clark Plaza, the new gambrel-style building includes a large, two-bay garage and work area on the main level, a separate office and showroom, and a two-bedroom rental apartment. Wolfeboro Carwash & Executive Detail owner Andrew Swenson, who bought the business in 2008, said he had been looking for a building lot for several years on which to expand. Turns out that his landlord, Clarke Plaza owner Paul Zimmerman, owned the Pine Street lot, which had one time had a dilapidated barn on it that was torn down. The location – a stone’s throw within sight distance from the carwash – was perfect.
The CUP & CRUMB fills a niche in Moultonborough and beyond
The aroma of espresso and scrumptious baked goods fresh from the oven greets customers as soon as they cross the threshold at the new Cup & Crumb café and bakery at 84 Governor Wentworth Highway.
Cup & Crumb owners Kimberly and Mike Prause, who opened the café just in time for the 2015 summer tourism season, have transformed the 103-year-old vacant building into a business that fills a niche in the community and provides a spot to, literally, slow down and smell the coffee.
Several years in the planning stages, Kimberly, a former English teacher and Assistant Principal at Moultonborough Academy, envisioned a relaxed setting that offered more than a drive-through service or convenience store counter. “I wanted it to be cozy, different from what we already had here. I wanted it to be somewhere I would want to hang out,” Kim said.
