I’ve been tracking Mammoth’s progress for some time now, and I believe in the huge potential ahead of us.”

"Chris [Hailstone] and I weren't looking to get out of the car wash business, but we did have a bunch of things we wanted to accomplish," said Brent Wignall, Wiggy Wash's co-founder. Mr. Wignall further explained, "The Mammoth team listened carefully to our concerns and structured a deal addressing each of them. We got the liquidity we needed, we got rid of our personal guarantees, we got equity upside, and we're still running our business and adopting the best practices of operators we admire. That's hard to beat."

"We had heard lots of great things about Mammoth from the operators who joined the company before us," said Chris Hailstone, Wiggy Wash's co-founder, who will continue to oversee maintenance and development opportunities for Wiggy Wash. He continued, "Now we know why. They treated Brent and me like partners from our first meeting. They got through due diligence quickly and didn't play games, and their purchase contract was simple and fair."

Mammoth is the first car wash acquisition platform formed by industry-insiders and is now the eighth-largest conveyor car wash operator in the United States according to Commercial Plus's Top 100 list. Mammoth is customer-focused operationally; operator-focused in its approach to acquisitions; and seeks to be the partner-of-choice for car wash operators who desire liquidity, growth capital, and a tax-deferred equity investment opportunity.
