“We’ve had an amazing response each year. It’s a fitting way to say ‘thank you’ to our customers who have supported us over the years. And hopefully we’ve introduced new customers to the kind of service and value we deliver year around,” said Brown Bear founder and owner Vic Odermat.

“We blend hard work, pride and a lot of fun into an event that benefits our customers and the environment,” said Odermat.

Odermat started Brown Bear in Seattle in 1957 with one location at 15th Ave West in Seattle.

    Like other commercial car wash operations, Brown bear reuses a lot of their water and pretreats their wastewater and discharges it into the sanitary sewer. Unfortunately, many of the small fund raising local events discharge into the local waterways via the storm drain. As an alternative, Brown Bear used to offer bulk discount tickets for groups to sell as a fund raiser. I hope they still do. Brown Bear also supports local non profit organizations working for clean water, which is where I became familiar with their operation. They are a good example of a local good neighbor business.
