Tommy’s Express Car Wash closed out 2022 by being awarded the No. 1 Smartest-Growing Franchise by Franchise Times, on their Fast & Serious list. The brand moves to the No. 1 spot after debuting at No.2.

            System sales grew 881percent from 2019 to 2022, the company says. “It’s not a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s not a financial engineering scheme,” president and COO Ryan Essenburg said. “A multi-generational legacy is what we’re trying to create, for franchise partners, employees, and the community.”

            In 2022, the brand opened 48 locations. These locations bring the total number of Tommy’s Express Car Wash facilities in operation to 137, with more than 450 future sites currently in development in the United States and abroad.
