PE-backed firm buys one of Tampa-St. Pete’s largest car wash operators
August 4, 2020 - Clean Streak Ventures has bought seven Bay Breeze Car Wash and Lube sites located in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area. Bay Breeze is one of Tampa Bay's largest car wash operators, offering express and full-serve washes, detailing and quick lube services. One of its seven sites is at 8201 U.S. Highway 19 in Pinellas Park. Others are in Tampa, New Tampa, Lutz and Lakeland. Clean Streak is an express car wash platform headquartered in Orlando and a portfolio company of MKH Capital Partners, a Miami-based private equity firm. The acquisition expands Clean Streak's current platform to 17 locations across Florida, including in Tampa-St. Pete, Orlando and Naples. Clean Streak's desire to retain the Bay Breeze employees was an important factor in the sale, Keith Feltner, former owner of Bay Breeze, said in a news release.
