New car wash company joining Ocala scene

A car wash company with dozens of locations across the United States is working on bringing its brand to Ocala, joining multiple other car wash companies that have made the move to the area in the past few years.

ModWash is working on its first location in Ocala at 1544 E Silver Springs Boulevard.

Founded and owned by Karen Hutton, the Chattanooga-based company has maintained a blistering pace during its expansion in recent years. That includes 13 locations that have already opened in Florida and 15 others that are planned.

ModWash sells its products as part of single units, unlimited memberships, or family plans, according to its website.

Like its competitors, the business offers bug prep stations, vacuums, air tools, micro fiber towels, window and mat cleaners, and air fresheners with every wash.

When completed, ModWash will join at least two dozen “self service” car washes in Ocala, a number that has nearly doubled since 2019.

That includes five RaceWash locations, with a sixth location currently planned near the Highway 484 and Interstate 75 interchange. Owned by Merritt Fore III and Mac Fore, the local business opened its first location along SE Maricamp Road years ago before adding three more locations along SW College Road, and a fifth location along West Silver Springs Boulevard.
