Kleen-Rite founder Harold McKonly was honored posthumously into the Car Wash Hall of Fame this past April. The award was presented at the International Car Wash Association’s Annual Car Wash Show in Las Vegas, NV. Accepting the award on behalf of Harold was his son, Kleen-Rite President, Mike McKonly. The award was given in recognition of the tremendous contribution Kleen-Rite has had on the car washing community. When Harold first started Kleen-Rite in the 50’s, there wasn’t a centralized location a car wash operator could go to for their parts and supplies. Harold’s vision changed all that by creating a one-stop shop for the car wash industry. Today, Kleen-Rite supports the operations of tens of thousands of car washes, not only in the U.S.A., but also across the globe. We are humbled and proud that Harold McKonly’s vision continues to impact the car wash industry.
