Driven Brands Car Wash North America announced the acquisition of Stop-N-Wash in Ardmore, Okla. The acquisition of Shop-N-Wash brings the total of Oklahoma locations for Driven Brands Car Wash North America to four.
Stop-N-Wash has been recognized several times for its outstanding wash service, winning “Best of the Best” People’s Choice Awards for Best Car Wash of Southern Oklahoma. They are well known throughout the Ardmore community for their super tunnel car wash service, as well as offering a full-service pet wash station.
“We are happy to welcome Stop-N-Wash to the Driven Brands family of car washes” said Driven Brands Car Wash North America President Gabe Mendoza. “We are always looking for well-run companies with great reputations and a strong customer following and they fit that model very well.”
“I was very pleased with how the deal with Driven Brands came together,” said Aldo Waters, CEO of The Southern Group of Companies. “From their initial contact, negotiations and offer, their team of experienced professionals made the process straightforward with no surprises. Deciding to sell our car wash operation was not taken lightly but what they brought to the table for us and the opportunity for our employees made the decision that much more obvious.”
