After 38 years in business carwash owner sells both carwash and lube sites

October 21, 2013
FORT DODGE, IA — After 38 years in business Ron and Pam Vincent closed their carwash and lube businesses.

The decision came after the Kemna family offered to buy the Vincent’s businesses as part of their expansion plans.

"We didn't want to compete with Ron's," Carey Kemna said in The Messenger story. " ... He ran an absolutely wonderful business. A lot of people knew him, loved his car wash, did service work with him. ... We wanted to be a good neighbor and help him out. ... He's at that retirement age where he was kind of ready."

The Kemna’s will honor all unredeemed Ron’s Car Wash tickets when they reopen the upgraded site in 2014.

"My wife and I have enjoyed having wonderful customers and employees," Ron Vincent said.
