Founded in 1959, the company now operates over 100 gas stations and convenience stores in Nevada, California and Arizona, the release added, and it is in the beginning steps of an extensive carwash expansion.

“We are very proud to have been selected to fill this important role for such a great carwash operator,” stated Dave Krause, president/CEO of CSI. “Terrible’s Car Washes are known nationwide and have a great reputation throughout our industry.”

We believe CSI will be a great partner for many, many years.”

Western Auto Wash & Specialty Wash Systems, Las Vegas, is CSI’s strategic partner in Nevada and is supporting the KAP with comprehensive logistics, site conversion and equipment installation activities, the release stated.
