CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Driven Brands Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: DRVN) is proud to announce the acquisition of its 100th car wash since entering the business in August 2020. This milestone highlights the speed at which Driven Brands is expanding in one of its newest business segments. This brings the total number of Driven Brands Car Washes in the U.S. to over 300.
Driven Brands is the fastest-growing express conveyor car wash operator in North America.
Driven Brands most recently acquired Magic Tunnel Car Wash, which operates 16 sites across Ohio, West Virginia, and Georgia. Magic Tunnel has a strong wash club subscriber base, aligning with Driven Brands’ overall customer data strategy.

John Teddy recently joined Driven Brands as EVP and President, Car Wash North America. “We are thrilled to welcome Magic Tunnel Car Wash to our portfolio at Driven Brands and expand our reach to more customers in the U.S. I am excited to continue building this portfolio as the fastest-growing car wash business in North America,” Teddy said.
