Tucson, AZ-based Mister Car Wash finalized the acquisition of five Octopus Car Wash locations in Rockford, IL and Madison, WI on June 30, 2015. The company now operates 157 car washes in 18 states and continues to accelerate its growth strategy having added 21 stores to its portfolio since the beginning of the year.

“Quality car wash owners who are getting ready to exit the business don’t just want to cash out, they want to make sure their business will continue to flourish and that their people will be taken care of,” said Casey Lindsay, Mister Car Wash director of mergers and acquisitions. “Our commitment is to retain and continue developing newly acquired teams.”
