ZIPS Car Wash Acquires Heroes Car Wash

ZIPS Car Wash (www.zipscarwash.com) announced today two single site acquisitions from Heroes Car Wash in Holly Springs, NC, and from Rocket Wash Express in Goldsboro, NC. ZIPS now operates 32 locations across North Carolina, becoming one of the largest, privately-held express car wash operators in the state. ZIPS now operates more than 225 express car washes across 22 states.

“The Rocket and Heroes acquisitions expand our ever-growing footprint in North Carolina”

The ZIPS acquisition of Heroes Car Wash marks the second transaction with the principal Heroes group. In 2021, ZIPS acquired from the group Carolina Car Wash in Greensboro, NC, expanding ZIPS site count in greater Winston Salem to seven locations.

“The Rocket and Heroes acquisitions expand our ever-growing footprint in North Carolina,” said Mike Corey, Chief Development Officer for ZIPS Car Wash. “Our growth strategy continues to improve and evolve as we work to expand in a way that benefits both our customers and our business model,” he added.

This is the company’s first transaction with Rocket Wash Express, a brand based out of North Carolina, that continues to operate a handful of locations across the state.

“Our growth through both acquisitions and development in North Carolina has come about quickly and energizes us to serve customers in both the larger, metro areas of North Carolina and in the smaller communities,” said Corey. “We’re currently serving customers from Asheville to Goldsboro and lots of stops in between and feel our density of stores is just another added benefit to our valued unlimited wash club members,” he added.

Both acquisitions were finalized during the last week of December.
