Brian Wendling Sr. is an accomplished entrepreneur with over 30 years of experience in the power washing industry. At the young age of 23, he founded Rolling Suds Mobile Power Washing Inc., starting out of his parents’ house with just one truck and a single power washing machine. Over the years, Brian’s hard work and dedication, along with his commitment to customer service, helped his business grow into a top-rated residential and commercial power washing company.
With Brian’s leadership and innovative ideas, Rolling Suds continued to expand, and in 2021 he purchased the building where the company is currently located. The same year, he also decided to take the business to the next level by franchising it. This allowed him to share his Professional Wash Method with other entrepreneurs seeking the level of success he has achieved. Today, Rolling Suds is a leader in the power washing industry with over 30 employees, 23 trucks, and a reputation for excellence.
Brian’s success is not just limited to business, as he is also a devoted family man. He and his wife Marybeth are proud parents of two successful sons, one of whom has joined the Rolling Suds team. In his free time, Brian enjoys spending time with his family and friends, playing golf, and relaxing at his Bayfront home in Ocean City, New Jersey. Brian’s values of hard work, innovation, and family are evident in everything he does, making him a true leader in his industry and an inspiration to others.
Brian Wendling Jr. is a true entrepreneur who has made his mark on the power washing industry. Growing up in and around the Rolling Suds, he was inspired by his parents’ hard work and dedication to their business. It wasn’t long before he realized that he wanted to follow in their footsteps and be an entrepreneur himself.
After graduating from college, Brian had no interest in working for someone else. Instead, he decided to give back to his parents and the business that had given him so much. He took over
the reins of Rolling Suds in 2015 and since then, he has more than doubled the size of the business.
What sets Brian apart is his strong desire to help other families succeed. Together with his father, he decided to franchise the Rolling Suds business to help other entrepreneurs achieve the same success he has had. He believes that by doing so, Rolling Suds can become the biggest power washing company in the world.
Aside from his work, Brian is a loving fiancé to his soon-to-be wife Gabriella. They are set to be married at the end of the year and are looking forward to building a life together. When he’s not busy running the business, Brian enjoys working out and trying out new restaurants. He also likes spending time at his family’s house on the Jersey Shore, soaking up the sun and enjoying quality time with his loved ones.
