12 Oct DRIVEN BRANDS CAR WASH ANNOUNCES ACQUISITION OF VILLAGE EXPRESS CAR WASH IN SUBURB OF CLEVELAND, OHIO
Centennial, CO – October 8, 2020 – Driven Brands Car Wash, the world’s largest local car wash, today announced the acquisition of Village Express Car Wash in Orange, Ohio, an inner suburb of Cleveland. With this acquisition, ICWG grows to 18 locations in the state between the Goo Goo Car Wash and Car Wash USA Express brands.
“We are excited to continue our growth in Ohio with the acquisition of a well-respected business such as Village Express,” said Gabe Mendoza, President of International Car Wash Group, North America. “We look forward to providing excellent service to the Shaker Heights, Woodmere, and Orange communities.”
Steve and Dina Haynosch purchased Village Auto Wash, as it was previously known, in 2001 and offered vehicle washing services as well as attended fuel pumps. They eventually moved away from the fuel business to focus on the express car wash model, undergoing a major renovation in 2017 and rebranding as Village Express Car Wash.
Owner Steve Haynosch commented, “Dina and I have enjoyed serving this community for the last 19 years and have made true friends of our employees and customers alike. Driven Brands Car Wash is the right partner for the next chapter of the business.”
Goo Goo Car Wash was introduced to Ohio in 2008, and now has 12 locations throughout the state. Car Wash USA Express has grown to 5 locations in Northwest Ohio since the first opened in 2017. Driven Brands Car Wash is positioned for additional growth in the state through acquisitions, as well as new site development scheduled for completion in mid-2021.
