Senior Development and Project Manager @ Halo Car Wash

Company: Halo Car Wash

Position: Senior Development and Project Manager

Location: Ottawa, ON

With the traditional car wash systems often burdened by long lines, inefficient washes and high prices for customers, Halo’s founders saw a gap in the market. In 2016 the leadership at MacEwen, an established and reputable family business in Ottawa, saw the opportunity to leverage their experience in the gas station industry and find a new and more desirable approach to satisfy their customers. After a period of in-depth research and consultation, Halo brought their first next generation car wash to market in 2019. Their first site in Stratford Ontario was proof of concept and has allowed them to refine the model to utilize for their second site before entering the Ottawa market with their Orleans location. With the land acquisition team at MacEwen providing the access to land and a desire to bring 3-5 new locations to market annually, Halo is now ready for aggressive expansion. The model is sound, and most importantly, the customer feedback has been exceptional. As a first mover in this space, they have a significant opportunity to lead the Ontario market and have multiple sites serving both urban and suburban markets in larger towns and cities across the province. With new sites being acquired and the need to expedite the development process and new site rollouts, they are looking to add a crucial development and project management leader to their business.
