The company has washed over 130,000 cars during their annual free car wash days over the past six years. “We blend hard work, pride and a lot of fun into an event that benefits our customers and the environment. It’s a fitting way to say ‘thank you’ to our customers who have supported us over the years,” said Brown Bear founder and owner Vic Odermat in a press release. Odermat started Brown Bear in the city in 1957 on 15th Ave W. Now, they have car washes throughout the Puget Sound area and Spokane.
