The dream of Moo Moo Express began when Founder John Roush’s favorite conveyor car wash closed in Pickerington, Ohio. Roush began researching the industry in hopes of opening his own express car wash. In addition to offering state-of-the-art equipment and a focus on excellent customer service, Roush wanted a unique brand. He designed the architecture of the Moo barn in remembrance of the Hunter’s Run Barn— an historic barn from his childhood that had burned down. After weeks of struggling to come up with a name for the business, an idea came to him while spotting cows during a road trip: What’s in a barn? Cows! What do cows say? Moo!
Today, Moo Moo Express is proud to offer a fast, high quality, fun and ecofriendly car wash at a great value! We recycle our water, use all high efficiency equipment and biodegradable soaps to ensure the lowest environmental impact. Our high tech Envirosoft equipment gently and effectively cleans our customer’s cars to a show room finish.
In 2018, Moo Moo Express entered into a strategic partnership with Wildcat Capital Management, the family office of TPG Capital co-founder David Bonderman. Attracted to our recognized expertise in customer service, operations, site design and construction, Wildcat is helping fuel the Company’s overall growth and responsible expansion.
Today, Moo Moo Express Car Wash operates under the parent company of Express Wash Concepts, which includes Greater Dayton and Richmond, Indiana-based Flying Ace Express Car Wash, Greater Cleveland, Toledo and Pittsburgh-based Clean Express Auto Wash, Virginia and North Carolina-based Green Clean Express Auto Wash and east Central Ohio-based Bee Clean Express Car Wash.
Being home grown and operated, we consider it a responsibility and privilege to give back to our community. Each year, we donate our time and thousands of car washes to raise money for local non-profit and youth organizations. Through our Moo Cares initiative, each year we donate hundreds of thousands of dollars to Central Ohio organizations including Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Flying Horse Farms, Local Matters, MDA’s Summer Camp and St. Jude, among many others.
