The Geowash Story
Geowash arrives down under..
In 2010, Sanam Ali identified a gap in the Australian market for a premium quality hand car wash and detailing service. As a consumer she had always struggled to find a quality car wash where she could trust the brand and enjoy some “me time”. Driven by her passion to bring a change in the car wash industry, she found Geowash, a trusted international operating in 35 countries around the world and decided to bring this quality down under.
After all the car wash and detailing services industry has gone through a period of spotless growth over the past five years. The number of cars on the road is steadily growing. There are over 17 million registered cars in Australia. Number of car dealerships in the country is also rapidly growing.
The industry revenue is forecast to rise by a compound annual rate of 2.1% over the next five years, to reach to $584.1 million in 2019-20.
Sanam has experienced every facet of the company, from managing the first store in Coffs Harbour NSW, working in the store, to driving the growth of becoming the fastest growing hand car wash and detailing franchise café in Australia and further growing into untapped market with the automotive industry. This has allowed her to fully understand and develop all aspects of a growing business. Geowash would not be Geowash, however, without her phenomenal team that has achieved amazing results to help the brand grow to the amazing brand that it is today.
Amazing to think that Geowash Hand Car Wash & Detailing Café that came to Australia in 2011 has grown into such a huge success – with 20 franchisees Australia wide and a presence in 35 countries internationally – and growing !
