Working at the Carwash

Rochel Burstyn

It’s almost Pesach and you’re scrubbing your house from top to bottom — but don’t forget about your car! Jr. met with Eric Brokus, the manager of Ric and Stan’s Carwash in Otsego, Michigan, to get a peek behind the scenes.

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Hi, Eric! What can you tell us about your carwash?

Ric and Stan’s was opened in 1983 by my father, Stan Brokus, so it’s over 30 years old. We have five self-serve areas and two drive-through areas where the machines wash your car for you. One’s a touchless carwash, the only thing that touches the car is soap and water. The other’s a soft touch, with the familiar spinning brushes that really scrub the car.
