2019 Keynote Speaker: Moo Moo Car Wash’s John Roush

When John Roush’s favorite carwash shut down he decided to build his own. After doing his due diligence he also decided that the wash he would build would have character, a recognizable brand and a unparalleled level of customer service.

Roush, an Ohio-based carwash operator and commercial retail development executive with more than 25 years of experience in retail, commercial and residential projects, did just that. As founder and managing partner of Moo Moo Express Car Wash, he is responsible for the research, planning, branding and development of the award-winning chain. Under his leadership, Moo Moo has grown to 16+ central Ohio locations since opening his first wash in 2008. In 2018, he washed more than 2.5 million cars. He is also the co-founder of Flying Ace Express Car Wash, with five+ locations in the greater Dayton market.

He currently serves as CEO of Express Wash Concepts, the parent company of Moo Moo Expess, Flying Ace Express and the upcoming CLEAN Express brand. In April of 2018, Roush facilitated a private equity firm investment with Wildcat Capital Management which has enabled Moo Moo and Flying Ace to continue to build on their success and expansion.

A central Ohio native, Roush is a member of the International Carwash Association Board of Directors and is a 2019 Columbus Chamber Small Business Leader Award Finalist.
