The Car Wash Operators of New Jersey (CWONJ) visited the Freehold market on June 7 and toured three state-of-the-art locations and made a stop at Ray Catena Audi, the country’s largest Audi dealership. “The event is a great way to see what is new and innovative out there, and to connect with your fellow operators,” said CWONJ President Mike Conte. “The stop at Ray Catena and a great lunch just capped off the event.”
First stop was Ray Catena Audi in Freehold. This facility is the largest freestanding Audi dealership in the country and features a 75-foot Belanger tunnel, detailing and ZEP Vehicle Care solutions. The group was treated to a personal tour and left with a goodie bag compliments of Ray Catena.
