About Us

History

Parkwood Auto Spa has been family-owned and -operated for more than 17 years. Dave Nufer founded both the carwash location on Edison Road and on East Ireland Road in 1997. He originally set out on a conquest to buy and develop another laundromat as he had been doing since 1982. Dave's family had a history of acquiring and developing laundromats dating back to 1961. Two of his laundromat complexes included self-serve car wash bays and automatic carwash tunnels. Those complexes evolved into two separate entities, owned by the same family: Burton's Laundry and Parkwood Auto Spa.

 

The location on West Edison Road received a facelift in the summer of 2011 with brand new wiring and updated equipment. Shortly thereafter, the carwash located on East Ireland Road was updated and now offers a tire shine service. In addition to the self-serve bays and tunnel wash, both locations feature vacuum and shampoo kiosks for customers.

Community Outreach

Parkwood Auto Spa appreciates the business of local customers and is devoted to giving back to the community in which it thrives. In the past, we have lent our automatic tunnel car washes to fundraisers where we offer a free wash in exchange for a donation to a particular charity. We also have put together auction baskets that we donate to benefit charities like the Chiara Home of South Bend/Mishawaka and the Mishawaka Food Pantry.
