In 1969 when the original Mister Car Wash location opened in Houston, Texas, no one could’ve predicted it would flourish into the largest full-service car wash and lube center chain in the United States. Humble and focused on the mission, they believe in a simple philosophy: work hard, always do the right thing and serve the best car wash experience around. Today, these unassuming practices remain a solid foundation to the success of Mister Car Wash.
Car Wash Partners was founded in 1996 by Brown, McMillan & Co. to “roll up” the fragmented car wash industry and create the first national car wash company through acquisitions. They set out 18 years ago, to ensure a reliable and strong business with large growth potential.
In 2007, the company was acquired by ONCAP, a mid-market private equity firm, which has since allowed the company to double in size.
With 128 car washes and 32 lube centers in 13 states throughout the country (and growing) Mister attributes the growth and accomplishments to a commitment to delivering excellent service, treating the entire team like the everyday heroes they are, never resting on their laurels and ensuring every car drives away sparkling.
We’re the fastest growing company in our industry and are constantly looking for good car washes that will complement our portfolio of stores. Acquisitions are an important component of our growth strategy and we’re currently looking for single sites or multi-unit chains in our existing markets: Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah and Washington, as well as interested in diversifying into new markets with multi-unit acquisitions.
