Zips Car Wash wowed the industry in 2016 when it added 40 new car wash locations to its already-impressive arsenal through a major acquisition. Just a few months into 2017 and the company already seems set to continue the fast expansion. It’s most recent purchase was in San Antonio, Texas.
The Arkansas-based company was featured in one of its hometown publications, Arkansas Business, which reported that the company has added four more locations. The four new locations were all part of the Texas chain Cascades Car Wash. The company already has plans to build a new, fifth location in that same area in Texas. They already operated two of their own locations in San Antonio before the latest purchase.
“This acquisition means we are now operating 72 locations in nine states and we are excited to bring the Zips Culture to more customers in San Antonio,” CEO Brett Overman said in a news release. “In 2016, we washed over 7 million vehicles and with this growth, as well as our recent acquisitions in Louisiana, we hope to surpass last year’s accomplishments and bring our stewardship of service to even more customers.”
Zips is now operating in several states: Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi. We’re excited to watch as this promising operation continues its expansion.
