World’s largest car wash company to locate new facility
TIFFIN, OHIO – September 22, 2017 – Developers have announced intentions to build a Goo Goo 3 Minute Express Wash car wash franchise on an outlot of the Tiffin Mall property. The real estate purchase, construction and equipment costs represent a $2.3 million investment and the creation of up to 15 new jobs.
Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz says the project is just the first in a series of development initiatives being planned for the site. “It is exciting to see development moving forward in our West Market Street commercial corridor,” he said. “These large-scale projects take time to plan and bring to fruition; this is the first step of many to come for the mall site.”
Started in 1945 in Anniston, Alabama, Goo Goo Car Wash is an express car wash company headquartered in Columbus, Georgia with 39 outlets in five states. The company, in turn, is owned by private British IMO Car Wash Group, the largest car wash company in the world. IMO operates a network of 800 sites across 12 European countries and Australia, washing over 30 million cars every year.
The Goo Goo car wash is the first project announced for the property since the Tiffin Mall was purchased by Toledo-based Key Hotel and Property Management (KHPM) last September. KHPM continues to negotiate development opportunities for the property.
