Flagship Carwash continues to expand across Northern Virginia with today’s announcement that it has acquired five more existing car washes, including one in Loudoun County.

The brand announced today that they are taking over five Embassy Autowash locations, including three in Fairfax County, one in Prince William and one locally in Sterling.

The Sterling Embassy Autowash is located on Pidgeon Hill Drive. That’s near the McDonald’s by the intersection of Route 7 and Countryside Boulevard.

The Sterling location will continue to operate as an Embassy Autowash for the time being, until all the needed equipment has arrived and then it will transition to the Flagship brand.

Keeping the car washes up and running is a lesson that Flagship likely learned from their experience in Ashburn.

Last year, Flagship purchased two car washes in Ashburn and one in Sterling and immediately closed them down to turn them into Flagship locations. However equipment orders got delayed and the locations sat idle for months. The Sterling Flagship has since opened, and equipment installation is now underway at the two Ashburn Flagship locations.

Flagship — which operates the largest indoor car wash in the United States near One Loudoun in Ashburn — has two car wash models. Both include a traditional tunnel to clean the exterior of your vehicle, but the full-service model includes workers who clean the interior of your car by hand, while the express which has free vacuum stations for customers to clean the interiors on their own.

According to its website, Flagship now has eight car washes open or in the works in Loudoun County and Sterling will be the ninth. A tenth location is planned for Leesburg near Battlefield Parkway SE and Miller Drive SE.
