Founded in 2006, Waves has a national network of more than 280 hand car washes operating in the car parks of various retailers across the UK and we are the biggest hand car wash franchise provider in the UK.

We strive to be "Best in Class" and the Waves team works tirelessly to deliver our vision of "Working together to make our customers smile" across the business and network down to individual site level teams. To achieve this vision, we work harder and better for our Franchise Partners, clients, workers and customers by sharing mutual values based on collaboration, transparency, teamwork and accountability.

Why franchise with Waves?

Car owners need to have their cars cleaned but are often too busy or simply cannot wash their own cars outside their houses. The simple remedy is to provide a high-quality hand car wash service to customers in a convenient wash-while-you-shop business model; this also provides an exciting and profitable business opportunity for our operators (Franchisees). 

There are various advantages to choosing franchising as a business model:

• A proven business model with great ongoing training and support 

• You use our know-how and brand name, which includes the Tesco Hand Car Wash brand and Clubcard, to develop and grow your business

• Technology is at the heart of our business and we continue to pioneer ways of using it to streamline the car wash industry. Examples of this include our bespoke Customer Processing System, Employment Compliance Database and Admin & Reporting Systems. All of this enables you to analyse your business from your PC or iPad, with the added benefit of cutting down your paperwork and time

• We ensure that all our sites are compliant for environmental, Health & Safety, planning requirements etc.

• You receive a full initial start-up pack and a turn-key business

• You receive initial and on-going training and support from an experienced team

• You can benefit from being part of a large network: e.g. national marketing campaigns, cross-sharing of information, part of our National and Regional Conferences, etc.

What our Franchise Partners say about us?

“I had my own independent car wash located in Kensington Homebase and when I found out Homebase had sold the building and I would need to move out, I started looking for other opportunities with greater security; that’s when I decided to start working with Waves. I now own four Waves car wash franchises around North London and Essex and have been working with Waves for 6 years.

Waves run brilliant marketing promotions in Tesco through the petrol filling stations and also in store tills; these promotions bring us a lot of customers each and every time!”

Kamel Youssef

“We have worked with Waves since December 2015 and have three sites between us; we used to have an independent car wash but it was the end of the contract and so we decided to get a Waves car wash. Waves support us in any situation; when we opened a new site, Waves was involved to help us to get new and happy customers, they have trained our managers to a very good, professional standard and any time we need something from them, Waves help us in anything we need”

Afrim Ujka and Renata Codreanu

“I have been running a car wash in Tesco for 13 years and have been a Waves Franchise Partner for 7 of those. Before that I was working in the first job in my life (not professional hand car wash) and the next step was thinking what I should do! Having seen how professional, passionate, official and organised the Waves team are, I decided that my future was with Waves. From the first day (and ever since), they are always teaching me and supporting me in the right way. Of course I listen to them always and benefit from the Waves Regional Manager and the whole Waves team. Thank you to all of the Waves team!”
