Brown Bear Car Wash opens in Puyallup, WA; new tunnel wash is company’s 44th location

Jul 06, 2016
Brown Bear Car Wash has opened a new tunnel wash in Puyallup at 4412 S Meridian, the family-owned company’s 44th location in Washington.

The new tunnel wash offers three custom wash options (“Beary Clean,” ”Beary Bright” and “Beary Best”) and self-service vacuum facilities. Widely recognized for its environmentally-friendly practices, Brown Bear uses gentle, biodegradable cleaning detergents at all its locations.

“We’re excited to serve the car care needs of Puyallup area residents, and welcome them to join us in special promotions and community programs year around,” said Brown Bear Car Wash founder and CEO Victor Odermat

Other services include the “Brown Bear Unlimited Wash Club” valid at all tunnel wash locations, and the “Brown Bear Charity Car Wash Program,” an environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional car wash fundraisers where harmful run-off enters storm water systems and drains into Puget Sound or other local waters.

Odermat started Brown Bear in Seattle with one location at 15th Ave West in Seattle. The company now owns and operates 22 tunnel and 22 self-service car washes throughout the Puget Sound area and Spokane.
