Take 5 Car Wash®, part of Driven Brands, the largest automotive services company in North America, has announced that it has completed a series of acquisitions in the Midwest region, including Soft Touch Car Wash in Michigan, Auto Oasis Car Wash in Ohio, and Clearwater Car Wash and Birdie’s Car Wash in Indiana. The company now offers express car washes at more than 360 sites across the United States, 50 of which are in the Midwest.
The acquisition of Soft Touch Car Wash in St. Joseph, a city in southwestMichigan, marks Take 5 Car Wash’s official expansion into that state.
“We continue to discover amazing businesses across the Midwest that truly align with our tenets of fast, friendly, and convenient service,” said John Teddy, president at Take 5 Car Wash. “There are a lot of incredible communities in this region, and we have been fortunate to continually come across express car washes with outstanding reputations with their patrons.”
Auto Oasis Car Wash in Wadsworth, OH joins Take 5 Car Wash’s 36 other washes in the state. “Wadsworth is a strong family- and community-oriented town with hard-working people who are loyal to the core,” said former owner Tom Loos. “It’s been a true pleasure to be a part of this community as a businessowner.”
Expansion in Indiana with the acquisition of two Clearwater Car Wash sites in Warsaw and Muncie and Birdie’s Car Wash in Crown Point bring the chain to seven locations in in the state. Take 5 Car Wash started its expansion into Indiana nearly a year ago in September 2021 when it acquired three Dirtbuster Car Wash sites in the greater Indianapolis area.
