Aug. 11, 2022—Splash Car Wash has acquired Fast Lane Oil Change and Car Wash in New York state.
According to a press release, this acquisition brings Splash to a total of 36 wash locations in New York. Fast Lane is located in Brewster, New York.
Splash and Fast Lane have been direct competitors since 2007, upon Splash completing the acquisition of its existing Brewster location.
"This is a nice addition to our portfolio," commented Dan Petrelle, Chief Operating Officer of Splash via the press release. "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."
