The 2012 Top 50 list - Professional Carwashing & Detailing

The 2012 Top 50 list

The following list is comprised of the nation’s largest conveyorized carwash chains, ranked by the number of locations and according to information supplied by the company or the company’s website. There may be other carwash chains that qualify for PC&D’s Top 50 list, but are not included in this report because the number of locations could not be verified by a company representative. Also, because a few locations had the same amount of locations, they have been given the same place on the list, and those locations have been listed alphabetically. If you know of a firm that has been omitted, please email Editor Debra Gorgos at [email protected].
