Arizona-based Mister Car Wash acquired Auto Spa Express in Colorado, and is now doing business in 19 states with 160 car wash locations.
Mister Car Wash is a portfolio company of Los Angeles-based private equity firm Leonard Green & Partners L.P. Founded in 1989, Leonard Green has invested in 72 companies with aggregate value of over $60 billion.
“We’re excited to join forces with the team from Auto Spa Express to begin serving customers in the Denver market at this prime location,” said John Lai, President and CEO of Mister Car Wash.
Mister Car Wash’s latest acquisition is a double tunnel, exterior only car wash situated in Southland, the largest outdoor mall in the US. With two tunnels to handle heavy volume plus detail services, it is expected to be one of Mister Car Wash’s highest volume locations.
“During its ten years in business at this location, Auto Spa has kept pace well with increasing demand from the growing Denver market. Being situated inside the largest outdoor mall in the United States will give us an awesome opportunity to introduce the Mister Car Wash experience to Denver customers,” said Lai.
