Three Grand Openings in 30 Days!

This is an incredibly busy time for us as we have three Tommy’s Express Car Wash Grand Openings in less than 30 days, one of which is scheduled for next week in San Antonio. Our team is running on all cylinders, and we are excited to add these washes to our portfolio.

Our March tranche is open for investment, and we believe there has never been a better time to invest in this space. You can learn more about the investment opportunity Here.

Entrepreneur Magazine recently released its highly competitive Franchise 500 list, which is based on brand strength and stability for potential franchisees. Tommy’s was named #1 in the Car Wash category and ranked the #52 franchise overall, landing in the top 4% of all brands recognized. We couldn't be more excited to be part of the journey. Please click Here or the link below to see the full article.

We will be hosting an investor tour at Tommy’s Express Car Wash in Dallas, TX on March 21st at 1 pm and you are welcome to attend. You can RSVP for the tour Here.

We recently hosted Alex Lemmen, CEO of Tommy's Express, on our Tommy’s Car Wash Webinar. We even had a surprise guest appearance by Tom Essenburg, who is the Founder and Chairman of Tommy’s Express and a member of the Car Wash Hall of Fame!

If you were not able to make it, we have the recording for you below:

Our Car Wash Fund is open for investment, and our operations team continues to make tremendous progress in the development and performance of our car washes as we open several new car washes over the coming weeks and months. 

Here are some highlights of the opportunity:

  • 10% Annual Preferred Return
  • Strong Cashflow on stabilization
  • Equity Upside Upon a Sale
  • Depreciation once sites are operational
  • Exit Premium at sale (due to portfolio size)

With a reduced lag time from land closing to build out, now may be the best time to enter this space as we have a strong pipeline of sites we are preparing to close on.

Some of the things we love about this asset class:

  • Fragmented Asset Class (Opportunity to consolidate at sale)
  • Strong Institutional Appetite (Willing to pay very aggressive multiples)
  • Recurring Revenue Model (Monthly subscriptions)
  • Aggressive Depreciation (Strong tax benefits once car washes open)
  • Recession Resistant (Car washes have performed well in turbulent times)
  • Proven Operations Team (Strong track record on existing car washes)

If you would like to invest alongside us in this opportunity, please submit your information using the button below, and a member of our team will reach out to you.

This is a 506(c) offering which means you must be an accredited investor to invest in this fund.
