Jabre Dutton has only been in business for about a month, but he is already planning big things for Jabre’s Car Cleaning Service.
The 11-year-old Philadelphia resident launched his car detailing business in August, after he told his mom, Sabrina Dutton, that he wanted money to make in-app purchases for his favorite game. She talked to him about credit, and Dutton told ABC 6 that’s when he decided “to start taking my money very seriously.”
He works on Saturdays and Sundays, with customers making appointments online. Dutton goes to each client’s home, where he cleans their car interiors while taking strict safety precautions. Word of the good work he does has spread, and he’s already booked through October.
Dutton told ABC 6 his hope is that once the pandemic is over, he can open up his own facility and welcome more customers. As it is now, he is enjoying earning money and building his savings, with his mom by his side. “I look up to her a lot,” Dutton said. “She’s been teaching me since I was a kid, since I was little, since I was born!”
