Cap Picnic & Golf Outing Thursday, September 27th

Message from the President

Fellow Carwash Professionals:

Though we are only halfway through the year, 2018 has already proven to be filled with change and growth! We continue to welcome new members who are joining the Carwash Association of Pennsylvania (CAP) to benefit from our organization’s network, support and industry knowledge. Our members have been faced with some unique challenges over the years, and we love having the opportunity to be able to help them work through it while building a stronger business!

Additionally, CAP has been busy planning several events for 2018 to bring our members together. In June, we hosted our annual dinner and table top show at the Hollywood Casino in Grantville. Carwash operators and vendors from across the Commonwealth showed up for a great evening of networking and education. Our featured speaker, Jack Oakley of Ryko Solutions spoke about the emerging trends in the carwash industry and how carwash professionals can capitalize on these trends to grow their businesses.

Even if your missed our June dinner, the good news is that we have more opportunities to get involved with CAP coming up this year! On Tuesday, August 21, CAP will host a baseball outing in Pittsburgh where we will see the Pirates take on the Atlanta Braves. All carwash professionals are invited to join us for this fun evening of networking and baseball! Ticket and sponsor information can be found on our website at

If the baseball outing doesn’t fit your schedule or interests, consider joining us on Thursday, September 27 in Carlisle for the annual CAP Golf Outing. The day includes golf, lunch and some really nice prizes this year, including a raffle for a Cobra Driver, TaylorMade Putter and autographed framed photos! It’s also a great way to spend some quality time with other carwash professionals. For more information about any of our upcoming events or membership, visit us at or email

Most importantly, I want to say how grateful I am to be a part of the community of carwash professionals, in Pennsylvania and beyond. Let’s continue to work together to support each other, grow our businesses and make 2018 one of our best years yet!

Wishing you an enjoyable finish to your summer,

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?
