FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A popular chain of car washes in Fort Wayne will be going through a name change in other parts of the state.
The two brothers who own Mike's Carwash, Bill Dahm and Mike Dahm, have announced reorganization plans. Together they own 41 car washes across across Indiana, but their locations in Indianapolis, Lafayette, Kokomo, Terre Haute, Anderson and Columbus will operate under the name “Crew Carwash.” They say the company will be split into two companies later this year. The locations in Fort Wayne, Evansville, Mishawaka and Ohio will keep the name but will be branded with a new look.
“Over the last couple of years, as Mike and I talked about the future of Mike's Carwash, we began to realize the potential for growth and continuing the business well beyond our lifetimes. We came to the conclusion that our families long term opportunities increased if we reorganized into two separate companies,” said Mike's Carwash CEO Bill Dahm.
They said the reorganization will create more opportunities for their 750 employees. They also note that anyone that currently holds Mike Carwash Book tickets will be accepted at both locations.
It also means a split in headquarter locations. Crew Carwash will remain to be based in Indianapolis while Mike's Carwash will have their home base in Cincinnati, in addition to the Fort Wayne office.
