Zoom Express Car Wash expanding

CLEVELAND — According to, brothers David and Scott Soble are growing their carwash, Zoom Express Car wash, across Northeast Ohio.


The carwash already has locations in Mayfield Heights, Stow and Twinsburg, and the Sobles are opening two locations in Brook Park and Avon soon, the article continued.

All but the Mayfield Rd. carwash location have been built from the ground up, the article noted.

Prior to starting Zoom Express, the Sobles owned a chemical manufacturing business, the article stated.

“[We] manufactured chemicals for carwashes,” David said. “We used to be a supplier … and then … a couple of years ago, we sold that company.”

The goal, he added, is for the company to offer convenient locations, superior wash services and a good product, the article noted.

When asked what differentiates their business from other carwashes, David said, “I think there’s a lot of different things. I don’t think there’s one thing that sets us apart.”
