Why a Car Wash?

The car wash industry is one of the fastest growing industries, as it reached a record high in sales in 2019 with an estimated $11 billion dollars*. Nearly 83% of Americans who own or lease a vehicle used a professional car wash at least once in the past year, and washing at home has dropped from 54% to 42% since 2016. Now is the perfect time to invest in a car wash, and we have options for any size investor.
