BUILD, SCALE AND EXIT THEIR
CAR WASH OPERATIONS
What is scaling car washes
Scaling Car Washes is a podcast dedicated to car wash owners and potential investors that want to build a scalable platform in the car wash industry. We are focused on helping people move from a Mom and Pop operation to a more professionally structured and operated platform so if and when they go to exit, they can maximize the value of their business or continue operating a business that is structured to be able to operate without relying on an individual owner.
We will be bringing on guests that have expertise in various areas such as multi-unit operations, financing and capitalization, HR, legal, real estate and site selection, etc.
Who is jt thomson
My name is JT Thomson. I built my first car wash in 2002. Since then, I have had experience at every level of the car wash ownership experience: I have built and sold my own car washes, helped other investors build and operate their car washes as a Sonny’s distributor, developed for major players in the car wash space and spear-headed a private equity backed company.
Which acquired car washes. Along the way I have been a multi-unit restaurant owner with 23 units in 5 states and have pioneered applying lessons learned there in the car wash space. The car wash industry has been very good to me and I am on a journey to give back by helping other owners grow and scale their operations to build a real multi-unit platform.
We will talk to experts in the car wash industry and related industries that can share inside information that will help you build, scale and ultimately exit your car wash platform.
