Car Wash Revenue Projections

  • The car wash revenue projection model provides the ability to generate a detailed income forecast and your direct cost for each sale. Using inputs like your customer acquisition costs, growth rate, varying car wash product levels, membership package tiers and more which are automatically plugged into your projected financial statements.

Car Wash Operating Expenses

  • The car wash operating expenses section enables you to create a detailed plan of your expected monthly expenses. The first 6 months of expenses are separated to allow for specific startup expenditures for your car wash. The remaining months will be recurring expenses that you can set to either be static or a percentage of revenue which allows the expense line item to scale with the businesses growth. The calculated expenses are then passed straight to the projected car was financial statements.

Car Wash General Assumptions

  • One of the most important aspects of creating financial projections for a car wash is to understand how much it's going to cost to get started. The general assumptions of the car wash template will collect your unique data on items like assets to be purchased, loan funds, investment funds, inventory, accounts payable, and more. The model will then calculate difficult items like amortization, depreciation, and interest expense as it generates your projected balance sheet.

Car Wash Salaries Planning

  • Create a detailed plan for the salaried employees your car was will require and how labor costs will scale as revenue grows. This section will also calculate things like employer taxes, benefits, and owner compensation.

Step 3: The model is automatically updated based on your assumptions

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the typical cost of goods sold for a car wash? 

Based on publicly available financial statements for Mister Car Wash, the company's cost of good sold for 2021 was roughly 35%. Based on this, we can assume that a car wash business should aim to generate gross profit of 65%.

How much can a car wash owner make? 

As a car wash owner, your potential income can vary dramatically depending on the type of car wash business you operate. According to Chron a small self serve car wash can generate $40,000 per year in profit, while a full service automated car wash can generate $500,000 or more in annual profit.

What type of car wash is the best investment?

As mentioned above, you can generate over 10x the profit with an automated, full service car wash when compared to a self serve bay based car wash, but just because you can generate more profit doesn't mean it is automatically the better investment. The full service, automated car wash will come with much higher startup costs. Our recommendation is to create a set of projections for various types of car wash models and see which you expect to have the best return on investment based on the projected startup costs and future cash flows.
