John D’Eri opened Rising Tide Car Wash in 2013, convinced that a business whose primary mission of employing adults with autism would be a financial success.
Three years later, Rising Tide continues in Parkland, and now it’s expanding to a second location.
D’Eri paid $1.5 million for 1.5 acres on State Road 7 in Margate — less than 5 miles south of the Parkland store. He hopes to break ground in July and open by early next year.
