The International Car Wash Group (ICWG), the world’s largest local car wash company, announced the expansion of its Colorado presence with the acquisition of four car wash sites in the Metro Denver and Colorado Springs areas.

ICWG is purchasing three sites - two in Colorado Springs and one in Aurora - from Wild Blue Car Wash. It is also acquiring a single site in Highlands Ranch from H2O Car Wash. All four properties will be rebranded as Car Wash USA Express, one of three sub-brands owned and operated by ICWG. With these acquisitions, Car Wash USA’s presence will reach 15 locations in the state of Colorado. A 16th site is currently beginning construction in Brighton. All employees from the purchased properties are being invited to stay on in their current roles.

“These acquisitions were attractive to us because they are very well run and successful businesses,” said Jeff Maize, SVP of Acquisitions, ICWG. “They are also strategic to our growth in Colorado and will help us scale our business here to new heights.”

“We were drawn to ICWG because they made it easy to structure a deal that works well for both of us,” said David Begin, Managing Partner, Wild Blue Car Wash. “We were also impressed by their track record for integrating companies and employees into their family of brands.”

“We knew from the outset that ICWG was really fair to deal with and that made them the right choice for us to sell to,” added Hayden Shamburger, Managing Partner, H2O Car Wash.

“We’re committed to serving the US market and providing customers in Colorado, and across the country, with the most satisfying car wash experience,” added Tom Mangas, CEO, ICWG. “To us that means staying focused on ways we can continuously improve and evolve the car wash, from hassle-free service to improved products for maintaining and protecting cars.”

ICWG also counts Goo-Goo Express and Supersonic Car Wash among its family of brands.
