We are honored to announce that Tommy’s Express was named the #1 fastest-growing brand by Franchise Times on its top 40 Fast & Serious list for 2023.  

After debuting at #2 on the list in 2022, we’re thrilled to be awarded the #1 spot this year.

Franchise Times visited company headquarters in Holland, Michigan in November 2022 to photograph and interview president Ryan Essenberg and CEO Alex Lemmen about the franchise growth. The story made the January 2023 Franchise Times cover

According to Lemmen, “It’s an honor,” to be a part of the Fast & Serious list and to be ranked No. 1.   

“Tommy’s Express Car Wash is our company’s way of sharing success with others, to help them enrich lives, add value, and serve their local communities. Growth and opportunity keep us striving ahead as we are filling a serious gap in service offering around the world.” 

System sales grew an incredible 881% from 2019 through 2021, and Tommy’s Express has its “foot on the gas,” says Lemmen, with a mature infrastructure ready to open 60 to 120 car washes a year. 

The Franchise Times Fast & Serious list is an exclusive annual ranking of the 40 largest U.S.- based franchise brands that are growing in a smart, sustainable manner.
