Message from the President

Warmer weather is finally here! With the beautiful spring we’re having in Pennsylvania, I hope your carwash businesses are booming as people wash off the residue of winter. Spring also means the Carwash Association of Pennsylvania’s Annual Dinner and Table-Top Show is right around the corner. Make sure your calendars are marked for Thursday, June 8 at the Hollywood Casino in Grantville!

Our Annual Spring Dinner is one of the best networking and business development opportunities we offer our membership. A mix of vendors and operators come out each year to stay on top of the latest trends and changes in the carwash industry. This year, we are excited to welcome Harry Campbell of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation as our featured speaker. He will educate us on clean water initiatives and how carwash businesses should prepare to remain in compliance, while overcoming the challenges these may bring.

As always, our Spring Dinner is no-cost to current CAP members, so we highly encourage you to join us on June 8 and take advantage of your member benefits! Non-CAP members are also welcome to attend. More information can be found at or by emailing

Speaking of CAP member benefits, we are excited to be adding to this list, especially to help our operators grow their businesses. As a CAP member, you can now list classified ads on our website and in our newsletters to help you easily buy and sell equipment. Our network of industry experts are also available to you to offer advice, troubleshoot issues and overcome challenges. Plus much more! There’s never been a better time to become a CAP member – and remember, the membership essentially pays for itself with FREE admission to our Annual Dinner and Table-Top Show on June 8.

From my experience, I can say that the carwash industry a great community of helpful and generous people. We share in some pretty unique challenges to which other types of businesses can’t relate. This is all the more reason for us to band together and call upon one another in a time of need. I am proud of the progress we are making through the Carwash Association of Pennsylvania and look forward to helping grow the industry through our efforts in 2017 and beyond.

About CAP

logobigIn the early 90’s car wash owners and operators rallied protect and promote their livelihood, as local and state government agencies continued to expand their regulatory reach on small businesses in the Commonwealth. The Carwash Association of Pennsylvania was formed by a group of proactive industry leaders to advance and safeguard the business interests of the car wash industry. Their vision was to build a trade association that would foster and support efforts to improve and expand the quality and standards of industry services. Further, Association founders wished to establish and facilitate a networking venue that promoted the development of industry relationships where members could share best-practices and business experiences. Do you share that vision?
