The Bear is on the move!
Phil Degeratto, owner of Buddy Bear Car Wash, comes from a family of entrepreneurs. His grandfather, known as “Papa Bear” by locals and friends, was the owner of Big Bear Foods Supermarket in the 60’s. Later, Phil’s father opened up his own food center called Buddy Bear. And today, Phil continues the legacy & name with Buddy Bear Car Wash!
Phil opened the first Buddy Bear Carwash on Pulaski & Washington over 30 years ago. Today he has 10 car wash locations across the Chicagoland area, with an 11th location (4936 W. North Ave.) coming in 2020!
