Mike's Carwash

Seventy years ago, Mike’s Carwash opened its first location in Fort Wayne. Since then, an important part of Mike’s business philosophy has been to give back to the communities in which it does business, especially its hometown of Fort Wayne. A perfect example of this “give back” philosophy was Mike’s Oct. 7 fundraising event to support the YMCA Youth Service Bureau. Since 1988, the Bureau has provided support for troubled youth and their families. During the Oct. 7 “Wash for a Cause” at all Mike’s Fort Wayne locations, half the proceeds from every Ultimate Wash sold were donated to the Youth Service Bureau. 

Mike’s is pleased to announce that the event raised more than $7,100. In the five years since launching its partnership with the YMCA, Mike’s has raised more than $38,000 to support the life-changing work of the YMCA Youth Service Bureau.


Founded by Joe and Ed Dahm in 1948, Mike’s Carwash was the first automated carwash in Indiana. Mike’s has since grown to a total of 24 locations in Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky – with plans to continue to expand in current and new markets.
