Brown Bear Car Wash turns “61” next Thursday, Aug. 23, and celebrates by offering free “Beary Clean” car washes to customers from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 26 tunnel wash locations.

Last year’s one-day event added sparkle and shine to a record-setting 30,853 cars and trucks across the Puget Sound area.

Brown Bear founder and CEO Victor Odermat opened the company’s first location in 1957 at 1800 15th Ave West in Seattle. Brown Bear owns and operates a total of 48 car washes throughout the Puget Sound area and Spokane.

“This has become a tradition for us, and it’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ to the communities that have supported us for over 60 years,” said Odermat. “It’s a fun and busy day as we celebrate with our customers while benefitting the environment.”

Seattle-based, family-owned Brown Bear is the largest car wash operator on the West Coast and 10th largest in the United States.
