Autobell Car Wash Inc. has opened its third wash in the Baltimore metro area, joining locations in Annapolis and Bel Air, MD, in an expanding market within the company’s five-state territory. The new car wash is located at 119 South Piney Road in Chester, MD, on Kent Island. Kevin Dixon leads the Autobell team as store manager, with 15 full- and part-time employees.

The Chester Autobell location is a unique conversion of a former bank building to a car wash. Repurposing the dormant structure included unusual challenges such as systematically dismantling and removing the security vault of reinforced concrete and its 1,800-pound door. The project was handled by the Autobell construction department in conjunction with general contractor Herman Stewart Construction of Lanham, MD.

The new location is the 81st wash for Autobell, the nation’s fourth largest car wash company. For more information, visit
