Rising Tide Car Wash to Open Coral Springs Location

Rising Tide Car Wash, which strives to employ adults with autism, will open a third location at 10340 Royal Palm Boulevard in Coral Springs. The company currently has locations in Parkland and Margate, with the new facility making Broward County the national leader in the self-supported employment model for adults on the autism spectrum. The groundbreaking will occur at 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 19 and will be attended by Coral Springs elected officials and Rising Tide leadership, including CEO John D’Eri and COO Tom D’Eri.

“By expanding to a third South Florida location, we are continuing to prove that employing individuals with autism can be a competitive advantage for business,” D’Eri says. “Not only will the Coral Springs location put Broward County on the map as the national leader in the self-supported employment model for adults on the autism spectrum, but it showcases the community’s dedication to inclusivity.”

The Coral Springs location is scheduled to open by early 2022. It is expected to create 25 new jobs for people with autism in the community, which would bring the employee total to over 100 at the three Broward locations. The new facility will be built as a custom car wash from the ground up and feature state-of-the-art equipment on one acre of land.

“Every time a customer leaves happy, every successful year of business we complete, and every new store we open is a testament of the value individuals with autism bring to the workforce,” D’Eri says. “The opening of the Coral Springs location marks a great milestone for individuals with autism, the City of Coral Springs, and the community in general.”

Rising Tide Car Wash was developed by co-founders John and Tom D’Eri, who created the business to help employ individuals with autism. They were inspired by watching John’s son and Tom’s brother Andrew, a vibrant young man with autism, struggle to find his place in the world. The company is one of the largest employers of people with autism in the U.S. Its current car washes in Parkland and Margate feature 80% of its workforce consisting of workers with autism.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
