Brown Bear Car Wash shines up nearly 30,000 vehicles on anniversary

SEATTLE — Brown Bear Car Wash thanks customers with 30,000 free washes to celebrate its “beary” big birthday.

SEATTLE — Brown Bear Car Wash celebrated its 59th anniversary on Aug. 25th with 29,673 free washes at 22 tunnel wash locations across the Puget Sound area, surpassing the previous one-day record of 26,437 set in 2015, noted a press release.

“It’s a big day for us, and a great way to say ‘thank you’ to our customers,” said Brown Bear Founder and CEO Victor Odermat. “From 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. we added sparkle and shine to thousands of cars and trucks, and generated a lot of smiles among our customers, too.”

According to the release, the family-owned company has provided nearly 280,000 free “Beary Clean” washes over the past 10 years to not only celebrate its August “birthday,” but also to honor former and current service members on Veterans Day.

In 1957, Odermat opened the company’s first location in Seattle at 15th Ave. West, and the company now operates a total of 44 carwashes throughout the Puget Sound area and Spokane, stated the release.
