Message from the President

Fellow Carwash Professionals:

Though we are only halfway through the year, 2019 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.

Additionally, CAP has been busy hosting and planning several events for 2019 to bring our members together. In April, our annual CAP Baseball Outing brought together a great group of carwash professionals to see the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders take on the Syracuse Mets. It was a real treat to throw out the first pitch.

Then 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, Pamela Piro, Vice President of Industry and Customer Relations for DRB Systems spoke about the emerging trends in the carwash industry and how carwash professionals can capitalize on these trends to grow their businesses.

Even if you missed our baseball outing or dinner, the good news is that we have one more event coming up this year! On Thursday, September 19 we will again host our annual CAP Golf Outing in Carlisle, PA. The day includes golf, lunch and some really nice prizes this year, including a raffle for a Yeti cooler! 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 www.pacarwash.org or email executivedirector@pacarwash.org.

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 2019 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?
