This session will address the state of the car wash mergers and acquisitions market and how economic pressures like rising interest rates and inflation can affect the industry. We'll dive into considerations for private equity-backed platforms, trends in scaling including the buy versus build debate, where current multiples are and what factors influence valuations, and future predictions for the car wash mergers and acquisitions market.
