Brown Bear celebrates 62nd birthday on Aug. 22, with free car washes at 26 tunnel locations

Family-owned company sets goal to exceed record-setting 32,789 free washes given away during 2018 celebration

Brown Bear Car Wash turns 62 on Thursday, Aug. 22 and celebrates by offering free Beary Clean car washes to customers from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 26 tunnel wash locations, including Auburn and Kent.

Last year’s one-day event added sparkle and shine to a record-setting 32,789 cars and trucks across the Puget Sound area.

The Seattle-based, family-owned company has provided over 400,000 free Beary Clean washes over the past 13 years to celebrate its August birthday and to honor former and current service members on Veterans Day.

Brown Bear founder and CEO Victor Odermat opened the company’s first location in 1957 at 1800 15th Ave. W. in Seattle. Brown Bear owns and operates 51 car washes throughout the Puget Sound area and Spokane, with a 52nd location opening this year in Lynnwood.

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