Young entrepreneur turns passion for cars into profession

Angel Rodriguez has always been a “car guy.” When he was a teenager and began driving, he wanted an immaculate car inside and out. In May of 2023, at 22 years old, he turned that pride for a clean ride into 803 Mobile Detailing and Wash and now serves the CSRA.

“I decided to go all out and bought the equipment and van to be able to provide a convenient service without the hassle of traveling to a brick and mortar, waiting in line, or trying to arrange for transportation,” explained Rodriguez.

803 Mobile Detailing can come wherever you are, whether it’s a company parking lot or to your home. Other services include ceramic coating, scratch, and odor removal, not only on cars and trucks but also for RVs and boats.

The mobile detailing industry is booming. In fact, the global car detailing industry is expected to reach $53.9 billion by 2030.

“Right now, I’m doing everything, but my goal is to grow my business and hire some employees.”

Aside from the passion for a customer’s clean ride, Rodriguez is motivated to succeed.

“I have a wife and nine-month-old daughter. It’s an incentive to work hard and provide for my family.”

For more information, call 803-645-1435 or follow the 803 Mobile Detailing Facebook page.

  1. Thank you for writing about Angel. I am his proud grandmother from Puerto Rico. Besides his business he is also a College student. I will attend his college graduation on May. He is a hard working young man whom I love and admire very much.
