ATLANTA, December 16, 2021 / / — Mammoth Holdings, LLC (“Mammoth”), America’s premier express car wash platform, announced that SUDS Car Wash (“SUDS”), a four-unit car wash operator with operations in Kentucky, has agreed to join the Mammoth organization. SUDS owner Jeremy Holbrook made a significant equity investment in Mammoth.

The Team’s customer focus and attention to detail is exactly what we are looking for in a partner.” He added, “The SUDS acquisition continues to grow our strategic footprint in Kentucky to 9 locations with several more in development.”
Jeremy Holbrook, SUDS’ owner, stated, “I have met some great people in this industry and learned a lot from them, but nobody has been more instrumental to our success than my father Jerry Dale Holbrook. His courage and commitment provided this opportunity.” He added, “Customer service is the hallmark of our SUDS brand. The Mammoth team is filled with high-quality, high-integrity people who I know will carry on the same customer and employee focus.”
Mammoth is the first car wash platform formed by industry-insiders and is the 8th largest conveyor car wash operator in the United States according to Commercial Plus’s Top 100 list. Mammoth is customer-focused operationally and operator-focused in its approach to partnerships and acquisitions and seeks to be the partner-of-choice for car wash operators who desire liquidity, growth capital, and a tax-deferred equity investment opportunity.
