Just who is Mike’s Carwash? Well, considering we rank in the top one percent of the 30,000 carwashes in the United States today, you might think we would be a chain or a publicly traded company of some kind. Instead, we’re still a private, family-owned business, committed to maintaining our high quality and continuing to deliver the type of service we’re known for.
The first Mike's opened in 1948 in Fort Wayne, and today you can get clean, dry and shiny at over 40 locations. In Indiana we have 20 in Indianapolis, six in Fort Wayne and one each in Kokomo, Lafayette, West Lafayette, Mishawaka, Terre Haute, Anderson, Columbus, and Evansville. We also have 7 locations in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area and 1 in Dayton, OH.
No matter which location you visit, you’ll encounter the two essential components that have fueled our success. First, we give our customers a clean, dry and shiny vehicle on each visit. Each Mike’s Carwash is equipped with the most advanced, state-of-the-art equipment and technology available. Our specially formulated detergents, "soft cloth," computer-controlled equipment, and our special "touchless" warm air dryers are just a few of the features that make Mike’s the ideal way to clean vehicles.
The Mike’s associates are the second, and most important, part of our continued success. We are very selective in hiring people, and the unsolicited remarks we receive from our customers tell us that our pickiness pays off. Customers keep coming back because of the way they’re treated by our 500 caring associates.
