FREDERICKSBURG November 25, 2019 -- Rio 1Car Wash has been selected for the 2019 Best of Fredericksburg Award in the Automobile Washes category by the Fredericksburg Award Program.

Each year, the Fredericksburg Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Fredericksburg area a great place to live, work and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2019 Fredericksburg Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Fredericksburg Award Program and data provided by third parties.
