Driven Brand Car Wash North America has acquired Tropic Car Wash with five locations in greater New Orleans, LA and Gainesville, FL and Ollie’s Car Wash in Zachary, LA.
Founded in 2002, Tropic Car Wash was one of the first adopters of the express wash model in Louisiana. Since then, Tropic has become a regional staple. “The owner of the five Tropic locations was looking for a quick sale, so my firm was called in to handle the close,” said Jeff Pavone, partner with Amplified Car Wash Advisors. “Driven Brands Car Wash was chosen as the buyer … They beat the aggressive timeline set by the seller and we closed in 45 days.”
Ollie’s Car Wash in Zachary was one of four locations previously operated by Brady Walton. “We were really pleased with how the sale and transition process has gone,” said Walton. “It’s good to see my team taken well care of.”
