"Wisconsin and Illinois are strong and dynamic markets with a long history of washing cars," said John Lai, President and CEO of Mister Car Wash. "This bolsters our already strong position in the Midwest and we can't wait to begin working alongside a very talented group of team members."

In addition to targeting high performing sites for acquisition, Mister Car Wash has been able to stay a steady course of brand expansion by focusing first and foremost on recruiting, training and retaining top talent from the store level to top leadership positions.

"Quality car wash owners who are getting ready to exit the business don't just want to cash out, they want to make sure their business will continue to flourish and that their people will be taken care of," said Casey Lindsay, Director of Mergers and Acquisitions. "Our commitment is to retain and continue developing newly acquired teams."
