Zips Car Wash adds 15 stores

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — The growing chain recently acquired new stores across five states.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Zips Car Wash has announced the acquisition of 15 stores, allowing the chain to add to its existing operations in Oklahoma, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina and Kentucky, according to a press release.

“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.” 

The 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, the release continued.

Expanding into the Raleigh area with this acquisition means Zips will now operate 11 stores in North Carolina, the release added.

In September 2018, Zips Car Wash acquired seven Rain Tunnel Car Wash locations, and recently added four more with the acquisition of Martian Car Wash and three stores with the acquisition of Westport Car Wash, all in the greater St. Louis area, the release stated.

Zips will now serve customers at 14 stores in this area, the release noted.

Zips acquired one carwash from Eco Express in Edmond, Oklahoma, just a few miles away from its other operations in Edmond and Oklahoma City, the release continued.

“The close proximity of our carwashes 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, the release stated.

Additionally, Zips acquired a single site in Walterboro, South Carolina, near its four other East Coast operations that surround the Charleston area, the release noted.

“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.
