Jerry Orloski and his wife, Anne, have opened a combination carwash/quick lube in the same community where his father, Frank, started a 43-store gas station chain.
In the spirit of the family business tradition, three of the couple’s sons will help at the wash, as well as their grandfather, Frank.
The 150-foot express exterior tunnel is one of the longest in the state, and there is an 11,000-square-foot building for detailing and drive-thru oil changes.
Frank Orloski sold his 43-store gas station chain six years ago for $41 million.
