Splash Car Wash, which is backed by Palladin Consumer Retail Partners, has acquired Brewster, New York-based Fast Lane Oil Change & Car Wash, an oil change service. No financial terms were disclosed.
This marks Splash’s 36th wash in New York State and complements the chain’s current full-service wash also serving the Brewster market and surrounding areas.
“This is a nice addition to our portfolio,” said Dan Petrelle, Splash COO, in a statement. “We plan to convert the site to an express wash with the addition of free self-service vacuums, pay gates and substantial equipment upgrades. Unlimited customers will be able to utilize both washes with their membership – express members will pay a small fee for unlimited access to the existing full-service site while primary full-service members can use either facility free of additional charge. This mirrors Splash’s strategy in the White Plains market, which has worked very well, where the chain operates two full-service sites and one express wash providing a comprehensive offering covering all wash needs of the customer base.”
Splash Car Wash was started in 1981 by Mark Curtis and Chris Fisher with a single location in Greenwich, Connecticut. Since that time, Curtis & Fisher, along with their experienced team and partners, have developed over 50 locations, and currently operate carwash tunnels in Connecticut, Vermont, and New York.
