White Horse is run by the Rust family and features an equestrian theme that is meant to complement the rich history and culture of Virginia. The name "White Horse" comes from a fishing rock on the east side of the Shenandoah River, that earned its name because when the water level rises the water rushing over the rock looks like white horses in full stride. Rust family legend states that John W. Rust pushed the rock into the river off a nearby mountain. Once you see the rock, you'll know it's only a legend!
In the lobby of the company's first location in Warrenton, sits the Warrenton Riding Cup, circa 1776. The cup is thought to be a predecessor to the Gold Cup, held in Warrenton each year. The Cup was won by a relative of the Rust family during a steeple chase. Along side an original newspaper article from the local Warrenton newspaper, The Solid South, describing the race and the trophy are a prized possession of the family.
Stewards of the land
We believe in being good stewards of the land and our position in the community. Using a commercial car wash is actually better for the environment than home washing. We recycle our water, treating as much water as possible in reclamation system. We store 6,000 gallon underground in settling tanks and use low-flow nozzles whenever possible to reduce water consumption. Our chemicals are biodegradable and exceed current EPA standards. Before building our Warrenton wash, we auctioned a significant portion of the previous building's components to allow others to reuse the material rather than simply putting the remains in our landfills. Finally, we used fire retardant wood and chose to sprinkler our building despite not being required by local building code to do so.
We understand that we are a conduit for many young people in the community and our management focuses on training, life lessons and many other skills that apply outside of the car wash industry. Many of our employees have moved up our ladder to gain, more and more responsibility and others have moved on to other passions, of which we encourage and support.
