WashHounds Car Wash welcomes CWONJ members.

The Car Wash Operators of New Jersey (CWONJ) toured three car wash sites on Tuesday, May 24, in the Newark, NJ, market. Approximately 50 participated in the day’s event that highlighted WashHounds in Bayonne, Supreme Car Wash in Newark, and Soaring of Elmwood. “The weather held out, the bus was full and the washes each had their own flavor,” according to CWONJ president Dino Nicoletta. “There was a lot to see and learn on this tour.”

The event also featured a sit-down lunch at Fernandes Steak House on Fleming Avenue, a local Newark favorite. The restaurant is nestled in a former bank and is known for its rodizio (all you can eat style) and endless parade of Brazilian meats. “In addition to the three great sites we toured, our lunch hit it out of the park,” said Nicoletta. “If you missed this one, you really missed out.”

The association’s next outing is its 20th Children’s Specialized Hospital Annual Golf Outing, August 1, at Suburban Golf Club in Union. Proceeds from the event go to the hospital, which is the largest pediatric rehabilitation hospital in the country.
