Company Milestone

Mister Car Wash hits 400 stores

Nation’s Largest Car Wash Brand Continues Exponential Growth

TUCSON, Ariz. – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Mister Car Wash, Inc. (the “Company” or “Mister”; NYSE: MCW), opened its 400th location on April 15 in Orlando, Fl. The landmark comes just nine months after the company went public through the New York Stock Exchange.

“This milestone is a testament to our people,” said John Lai, CEO of Mister Car Wash. “They are the reason we continue to scale and deliver an exceptional car wash experience.”

Chief Operating Officer Mayra Chimienti agreed, “We have a lot of momentum right now and the team is excited to continue on our trajectory.”

Rapid growth has been a standout goal of the business since Lai became CEO in 2013, shortly after Mister earned the title of the nation’s largest car wash chain. Since then, the company has grown from 91 stores to 400 and counting.

The company’s proven subscription model, products, and standards for quality are only the beginning. Alongside store growth, Mister continues to invest in the support infrastructure at the headquarter and regional level, internal talent development, upward mobility opportunities, and best-in-class benefits.

“We are seeing our prioritization of training and leadership development pay off,” said Chimienti. “We invest in our people, we believe in them, and they feel it. That makes for a solid foundation to build upon.”

Approximately 30 Mister locations will open between May-Dec. 2022 – a combination of acquisitions and new stores. In an industry with increasing consumer demand, Mister is well positioned to continue its strategic development.

“Expanding our footprint enables us to meet the needs of our growing membership and retail customers,” said Chimienti. “At each step we take a measured approach to ensure that we are scaling deliberately and sustainably.”

The 400-store milestone came and went with 401 quickly on its heels, a testament to the forward-looking work ethic deeply embedded in Mister culture.

“I hope our people take a minute to feel proud of how far we’ve come, but at the end of the day we all want to get back to washing cars,” Lai said. “Momentum is a powerful thing.”
