Dan Kestle, President and General Manager, just had his 30 year employment anniversary at Mr. Kleen. One day, Dan and his girlfriend, Angie were riding on his motorcycle as they pulled up to Mr. Kleen’s 44th Street service station to ask for a job. Today, that girlfriend is his wife and you can still find Dan riding a motorcycle between both locations as the General Manager.
Ted LaVigne, the Owner and founder, began Mr. Kleen Car Wash in 1967 and in 1972 opened the 44th Street, Lynnwood station. In 1998 Ted and his wife, Cecilia opened the Alderwood Mall Parkway location. They have never compromised their goal of maintaining a high level of employee standard, customer service and making both centers personable and professional for their customers. The motto of "Fast, Friendly, First Class Service" is the most important element in training all employees. Mr. Kleen is proud that 13 employees have been with the company between 10 and 15 years. Ted LaVigne, or better known as Mr. Kleen, has created a family atmosphere and promotes a community spirit that makes Mr. Kleen a 'special' place whether you are an employee or a customer.
