PHOENIX — GO Car Wash, a new express carwash platform, has acquired Big Splash Car Wash, with five locations in the Kansas City area, according to a press release.
Established in 2010, Big Splash has grown to have operations in Kansas City, Kansas; Overland Park, Kansas; Grandview, Missouri; and Kansas City, Missouri, the release continued.
“We are very pleased to add Big Splash to our GO Car Wash team in the Kansas City area,” said Darren Skarecky, CEO of GO Car Wash. “Jason and Claire Cunningham have established a solid business with an excellent team and a loyal customer base. We will continue to deliver high-quality service to customers throughout the Kansas City area.”
“When JT Thomson from GO Car Wash first approached us, it was an extremely smooth process,” said Jason Cunningham, Big Splash co-owner. “Claire and I spent the past decade building our Kansas City-area business, and we are excited to see the next chapter of our washes operating under the GO Car Wash umbrella.”
This acquisition represents the second in the Kansas City-area in the last two months, the release added.
GO Car Wash acquired two Travel Clean Express Car Wash locations in May 2019, the release noted.
The completion of these two acquisitions brings GO Car Wash to seven locations in the Kansas City area and on-track to reach its goal of operating 20-plus locations throughout the market, the release stated.
“We are aggressively looking for other opportunities to continue to build out our presence in the Kansas City market and are excited about the other opportunities in the pipeline,” said JT Thomson, chief operating officer at GO Car Wash.
GO Car Wash is looking to hire more teammates as it creates the most customer-centric carwash in the Kansas City area, the release continued.
“As we continue to grow, we are adding to the GO Car Wash team, so we’re targeting high-energy, customer-facing employees who are excited to join a bigger company with a strong career path for them,” Thomson said.
GO Car Wash will continue to deploy a multi-pronged growth strategy focused on acquisitions, partnerships and new site build-outs, the release concluded.
