The International Car Wash Group (ICWG), the world’s largest local car wash company and the third largest owner of U.S. conveyor car washes, has announced its expansion into the middle Tennessee market with the acquisition of two premier sites from Wash N’ Roll. The two companies are also entering into a deal to develop and expand in Nashville and surrounding areas.
Over the next six months, the two acquired Wash N’ Roll sites will be re-branded as part of Car Wash USA Express, the largest express exterior car wash in the mid-South, and one of three brands in the ICWG family, Goo-Goo Express and Supersonic Car Wash being the other two. ICWG is actively expanding its U.S. leadership through a regional, multi-brand strategy.
“We have two key goals for the foreseeable future: to delight our customers every day with a great car wash at a great value and to continue to expand our footprint across the U.S.,” said Tom Mangas, CEO, ICWG. “We are interested in doing more deals and hope that our resourcefulness and flexibility will make ICWG an appealing choice for car wash operators interested in selling their business and partnering with us.”
Headquartered in Centennial, CO, ICWG cleans more than 35 million cars a year. It operates 900 locations in 14 countries across the United States, Europe, and Australia, with 150 U.S. venues. The company was founded in Germany in 1965 under the IMO brand, the name still used at its non-U.S. locations. ICWG entered the US market in 2015. For more information, please visit www.icwg.com.

The group has also begun groundwork for development in other regions and hopes to hit new markets in 2020. For more information, please visit www.mywashnroll.com.
