This acquisition expands the ZIPS footprint in greater St. Louis, so the growing chain will now operate 18 locations in the area, the release continued.

“We’re thankful the Blue Iguana team has entrusted us with five additional stores in the St. Louis market, giving ZIPS a strong presence, specifically for its unlimited wash club members,” said Gene Dinkens, president of ZIPS Car Wash. “We’re excited to offer our unlimited services to customers across the city and hope the community is able to see the added convenience and value these new stores bring to their membership.”

ZIPS Car Wash will now serve customers at the following locations:

  • 11647 St. Charles Rock Rd., Bridgeton, MO 63044 
  • 1008 Hwy. K, O’Fallon, MO 63366

  • 3410 S. Kings Highway Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63139           
  • 4453 Meramec Bottom Rd., St. Louis, MO 63129               

“It’s been our goal for several years to reach 200 stores, and while it’s a great milestone for ZIPS, our focus in 2021 will be on each community and every customer we serve,” said Brett Overman, founder and CEO, ZIPS Car Wash. “By developing local partnerships, sponsorships and our new 24-hour clean car guarantee, we think 2021 will the best year yet for our team members, our loyal fans and the communities we serve.”

According to a separate press release, ZIPS Car Wash announced the grand opening celebration of its newest Cincinnati store at 12167 Montgomery Rd.

During the event, ZIPS will offer its best carwash free for 10 days beginning January 1, 2021, the release continued.

In addition, ZIPS will offer a trial unlimited wash club membership for just $1 for the first month and, as always, free self-serve vacuums, towels and spray bottles for interior cleaning, the release added.

“Carwash ceramics is a technology that we are excited to offer in Cincinnati, and when it’s applied continuously over time, it keeps your vehicle looking brand new at a very low cost,” said Dinkens. “Our grand opening event is a great opportunity to try our services and enjoy a trial offer of our unlimited program at a great price — we think you’ll be hooked.”       

ZIPS operates three carwashes across the city: on Colerain Ave., Princeton Pike and now on Montgomery Rd.

All stores are open 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily with free self-serve vacuums.
