Message from the President

Fellow Carwash Professionals:

It’s hard to believe that we are in the final months of 2018. I hope this year has been a prosperous and productive one for your business. The Carwash Association of Pennsylvania had one of our most active years yet, adding new events and new members along the way.

In August, CAP hosted its first-ever baseball outing for our carwash community. We had a great group of operators and business owners join us on Tuesday, August 21 to see the Pittsburgh Pirates take on the Atlanta Braves. With seats located on the third base side in the Pittsburgh Baseball Club, everyone who came got to enjoy a fun night, exciting game and some quality networking. We plan to make this an annual event, so stay tuned for our 2019 summer baseball outing date!

The following month, on September 20, CAP hosted its annual golf outing and member picnic at the Cumberland Valley Golf Course in Carlisle. We nearly doubled the amount of golfers that joined us compared to just one year prior! The great weather may have a helped a bit with this. Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors and in-kind donors, CAP’s biggest fundraising event of the year was a success and just about every golfer left with a prize.

CAP was also proud to have a presence at the 2018 Northeast Regional Carwash Convention (NRCC) in Atlantic City on October 1 through October 3. CAP’s Treasurer, Dave Edwards, along with Barbara Winsko, tirelessly manned the booth to meet and greet with attendees. If you missed us this year, be sure to keep an eye out for the CAP booth to be back next year. We welcome all of you to stop by!

As our busy year comes to a close, I want to again thank each and every member of CAP – and our carwash community as a whole. You are a part of what makes this industry special. I would be remiss if I didn’t welcome you to learn more about CAP and our membership benefits by visiting We would love to have you be a part of our continued growth in 2019.

Regards and best wishes,

Keith Lutz

President, Carwash Association of Pennsylvania

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?
