Columbus, OH-based Express Wash Concepts (EWC) has announced its acquisition of Ultimate Wash, located at 9475 State Route 14 in Streetsboro, OH. The acquisition brings Express Wash Concepts’ overall Ohio-based portfolio to 33 operating locations under the following brands: central Ohio-based Moo Moo Express Car Wash, greater Dayton-based Flying Ace Express Car Wash, greater Cleveland-based CLEan Express Auto Wash, and Toledo-based Meyers Auto Wash.

The acquisition was effective as of December 24, 2020, with no interruption to current Ultimate Wash customers. EWC plans to temporarily close the wash in late February, 2021 to convert to the company’s Cleveland-based signature brand, CLEan Express Auto Wash. Once re-opened, the new CLEan Express Streetsboro location will feature new wash equipment, a fully remodeled retail office, and a free-vacuum lot with 12 vacuums.

CLEan Express is continuing its expansion with two locations currently under construction, and several upcoming groundbreakings scheduled for spring, 2021. The company is expected to be one of the largest express car wash brands in Northeast Ohio by Summer, 2021.
