Charlotte, NC-based Autobell®Car Wash Inc. recently opened its 77th location. The full-service car wash is located at 45655 Shepard Drive in Sterling, VA — the former Sweetwater Splash Car Wash site.

The new location is the chain’s second location in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area, joining its Annapolis, MD, wash that opened last fall. Autobell is the nation’s second largest conveyor car wash company, offering an array of customized exterior and interior cleaning options, with most of its personalized wash services completed in 15 minutes or less.

The company was founded in 1969 by the late Charles Howard Sr. and remains privately held and operated by the Howard family. Autobell employs approximately 3,000 people and washes over 4 million cars annually. For more information, visit
