Growing Car Wash Chain Adds New Stores Across 5 States in Recent Acquisitions
Little Rock, AR (April 2, 2019)— Zips Car Wash (www.zipscarwash.com) announced today the acquisition of 15 stores, allowing the chain to add to their existing operations in Oklahoma, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina and Kentucky.
“We’re excited to acquire these thriving operations in areas where we already have great team members and a strong customer base,” said Brett Overman, Founder and Owner of Zips Car Wash. “We’re developing new ways to reach customers and meet their buying and budget needs and are excited to grow in these markets where we can see a great potential to better serve our customers with added locations in their area,” said he added.
Today’s announcement includes Zips Car Wash’s acquisition of five sites from American Pride Xpress Car Wash in North Carolina, allowing the company to expand beyond its existing operations in the Asheville and Winston Salem markets. Expanding into the Raleigh area with this acquisition means Zips will now operate 11 stores in NC.
In September 2018, Zips Car Wash acquired seven Rain Tunnel Car Wash locations in the St. Louis market and just added four more stores to their portfolio with the acquisition of Martian Car Wash and three additional stores with the acquisition of Westport Car Wash, all in the greater St. Louis area. Zips will now serve customers at 14 stores in the area.
Zips acquired one car wash from Eco Express in Edmond, Oklahoma, just a few miles away from its other operations in Edmond and Oklahoma City. “The close proximity of our car washes is all a part of our strategic plan to make our services more convenient for our customers, especially those most loyal to our brand – our Unlimited Wash Club members,” Overman added.
Zips will expand in Kentucky to Owensboro, adding this location within 100 miles of its other operation in Louisville. Additionally, Zips acquired a single site in Walterboro, South Carolina, near its four other East Coast operations that surround the Charleston area.
“We consider it an honor to grow with the communities we serve, and we look forward to a stronger investment in these areas,” said Overman.
