Centennial, CO-headquartered International Car Wash Group (ICWG), the world’s largest local car wash company, has announced the expansion of its Colorado presence with the acquisition of four car wash sites in the Metro Denver and Colorado Springs areas.
ICWG is purchasing three sites — two in Colorado Springs and one in Aurora — from Wild Blue Car Wash. It is also acquiring a single site in Highlands Ranch from H2O Car Wash. All four properties will be rebranded as Car Wash USA Express, one of three sub-brands owned and operated by ICWG. With these acquisitions, Car Wash USA’s presence will reach 15 locations in Colorado. A 16th site is currently beginning construction in Brighton. In keeping with ICWG’s deep commitment to employee retention, all employees from the purchased properties are being invited to stay on in their current roles.
“We were drawn to ICWG because they made it easy to structure a deal that works well for both of us,” said David Begin, managing partner, Wild Blue Car Wash. “We were also impressed by their track record for integrating companies and employees into their family of brands.”
“We knew from the outset that ICWG was really fair to deal with and that made them the right choice for us to sell to,” added Hayden Shamburger, managing partner, H20 Car Wash.
“We’re committed to serving the U.S. market and providing customers in Colorado, and across the country, with the most satisfying car wash experience,” said Tom Mangas, CEO, ICWG. “To us that means staying focused on ways we can continuously improve and evolve the car wash, from hassle-free service to improved products for maintaining and protecting cars.”
