Little Rock, AR-based Zips Car Wash has acquired seven Four Seasons Car Wash locations in Georgia and South Carolina. Zips now operates 122 stores in 11 states, doubling its size over the past 16 months. Zips Car Wash was founded in 2004 with only two stores in northeast Arkansas.
"Our rapid growth over the last 12 to 16 months has shown us both our strengths and weaknesses as we've transitioned dozens of stores to the ‘Zips Way’ culture," said Sam Neely, the company’s chief financial officer. "With each acquisition, we've learned valuable lessons and continued to improve the process for both the team members and our new customers by creating a transition team to visit each new market for extensive training to equip team members, update equipment, and introduce our unlimited clubs," he added.
