We’ve built Rising Tide Car Wash around the unique potential of our employees, most of whom are on the autism spectrum. By helping team members transform their natural talents into a professional skill set, we provide customers with a thoughtful and expert service, and give everyone on our team the chance to build a career and independent life.
Our vision is to prove that autism can be a competitive advantage for business by growing our car wash locations. We believe that successfully growing this business model can make a powerful statement of how capable people with autism really are.
