Zips

To our Valued Customers and Friends,

 

We are announcing the sale of our Titus Express Car Wash location in New Caney, TX effective July 8, 2022 to ZIPS Car Wash.

 

Consistent with our founding Scripture in Titus 3:4-7, we started Titus as a family-owned business in 2020 with a mission to glorify God in all that we do and to be a blessing to our employees, customers, and community. Since opening Titus New Caney in June of last year, it turns out that it is we who have been so richly blessed by the employees with whom we have had the joy of working, and by our loyal customers, many of whom we now call friends.

 

While we had no intentions of selling our New Caney location, we believe after much prayer that this transaction is a manifestation of God’s blessing upon His business of which we are just stewards, and will allow us to actually accelerate the growth of Titus.

 

ZIPS Car Wash is a well-established brand and one of the fastest-growing operators of express tunnel car washes in the United States with over 240 locations and with financial backing from private equity. We have met several times with the CEO of ZIPS Car Wash and came away impressed with his leadership and believe that our employees and customers will be in very good hands under the ZIPS Car Wash brand.

 

All operations at the wash will continue with business as usual. It is the desire of ZIPS Car Wash to retain all Titus employees so that our customers will still enjoy the same exceptional employees, wash quality, and experience. All Titus wash club memberships will transfer over to ZIPS Car Wash seamlessly with no action required by our members.

 

We remain excited about the future of Titus Express Car Wash and what God has in store for us. We hope to have exciting news to share with you in the future as our growth plans materialize. You can follow us at tituswash.com and on our Facebook page at facebook.com/titusexpresscarwash.

 

We will forever be so grateful to our employees, customers, and the New Caney community for welcoming us with open arms and for blessing us so richly.

 

With sincere appreciation,

Titus Express Car Wash
Founders: Tracy and Jerri Schmidt, Brandon and Kacey Berry, Josh and Lisa Schmidt

CUSTOMER Q&A

A: Titus Express Car Wash New Caney is being sold to ZIPS Car Wash.

A. The sale transaction will close on July 7th, and ZIPS Car Wash will take control on July 8th.

A. No. However, one of the major differentiators and reasons for the success of Titus New Caney has been our people. ZIPS Car Wash is making attractive job offers to all of our Titus employees including Alicia Baker, our very capable site manager.

 

It is Zips’ plan that you will still see the same smiling employees as they continue to strive to create an exceptional car wash experience on every visit.

A. Your wash club membership will transfer to ZIPS Car Wash with no action required on your part. The same pricing, terms, and features of the wash club package you purchased will hold true in your membership with ZIPS Car Wash until further notice. You will be receiving more information from ZIPS Car Wash as needed.

A. Although ZIPS Car Wash will have their own operating policies and procedures, it is anticipated that you will see no changes in operating hours of the business. Pay station lanes will continue to operate as they do today. ZIPS Car Wash will be sharing any pertinent information on their media platforms as needed.

A. When we were first approached about a sale, our consistent reaction was that it was not even a consideration. However, through weeks of prayer as a family, we began to sense God changing our hearts to understand that this sale opportunity was a part of His plan that would actually boost our long-term growth plans.

A. We are as excited as ever about the future of Titus. We have learned so much through designing, building and operating our first location in New Caney. What we have learned has confirmed our desire to be in this market sector. We are working very hard in multiple markets to acquire land. We have a long-term focus and are long-term investors and know that the right opportunities will solidify in God’s perfect timing. You can follow our future at www.tituswash.com and on our Facebook page.

A. Hands down, our lasting memories will be of the relationships we have formed with our employees and customers. That is what has made this decision so very difficult. Life is not about numbers and business performance – it is about how we can carry forth the plan God has set before us to share the love of Christ with all whose path He chooses to cross with ours. That will remain our burning focus as we continue to move forward.
