Brown Bear Car Wash

Our History

How it all started: Over 50 years of Brown Bear Car Wash service


Brown Bear Car Wash began in Seattle in 1957.  Victor Odermat opened the first Brown Bear Car Wash on 15th Avenue West, and that location is still in operation today.  People discovered that Brown Bear would make sure your car was spotless. They also liked the professional, friendly attitude of our employees. Brown Bear Car Wash is also committed to protecting water and marine life. Our equipment and techniques enable us to remove potentially hazardous substances from the water we use. All of our wastewater is treated. Brown Bear Car Wash customers trust us to protect vital natural resources.
