Car Wash Brokers Inc., a Scottsdale, AZ-based car wash and gas station brokerage and consultancy firm, has announced the sale of four car washes in Tucson, AZ. Located at 7210 E. 22nd Street, 2011 W. Valencia, 3410, N. 1st Ave., and 6611 Thornydale, the four-unit package consists of one express-exterior wash and three flex-serve washes, which can be converted to express.

         Roger A. Pencek, president of Car Wash Brokers represented both the sellers and the buyer in the transaction. Troy and Lori Frey, the sellers, have been operating the business under the Octopus Car Wash banner since 1998. The Octopus trade name was not included in the sale. Tim Secolo, owner of Century Petroleum LLC, the buyer, previously owned and operated a gas station and exterior car wash in Oregon.

         It is not Secolo’s intention to convert the flex-serve locations to express. As a result, this will be his first stab at running a full-service operation. The four wash locations, which are being rebranded Blue Whale Car Wash, have a good management structure in place and will also benefit from Secolo’s hands-on management approach.
