Chico Towing sold to Kitsap Towing

Most recent owner Stacey Canterbury, who has held that title for 26 years, has decided to step down

After 75 years of family business through three generations, Chico Towing has been sold to Kitsap Towing.

Since 1945, Chico Towing has served Kitsap County customers with 24/7 towing, recovery, and roadside assistance services. Owner Stacey Canterbury, has held that title for 26 years, and recently decided to step down.

Chico Towing was originally founded by Donald Tucker, as a repair shop. By the late ‘70s and early ‘80s, second-generation owner Pat Tucker focused his efforts on the towing side of the business and moved the offices into Bremerton. In 2006, Chico Towing moved again to a new facility and impound yard at Tweed Business Park.

Over the years, the business grew from a one-truck operation to almost 20 pieces of equipment of all types and sizes. Kitsap Towing will bring a new division to the corporation dubbed “Kitsap-Chico Towing,” which will be displayed on some of the tow trucks.

“Stacey and her husband, Justin, have worked closely with us to make sure this transition to a new era will be a successful one,” a statement from Kitsap Towing’s website reads. “With aligning goals, aside from seeing a logo change, our customers will experience the same customer service they have come to expect from their preferred tow company.”

“Our 26 years of experience combined with the household name of 75 years, will launch a service with the largest fleet in county history and three locations to best serve our customers and law enforcement.”

A community celebration will be held Jan. 31 at the Kitsap Golf & Country Club with former and new owners of Chico Towing. An open house event will be hosted from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., with a brief program at 6 p.m., and live music throughout the evening. Folks who are interested may RSVP on Kitsap Towing’s Facebook event or by texting KCT to 555888.
