On 1st October 2011, Waves Consultancy Limited was proud to become the sole supplier to Tesco, responsible for managing Tesco’s entire hand car wash portfolio.
Waves and Tesco are able to offer a very exciting prospect: as part of the initial franchise fee we supply you with a fully equipped car valeting centre operating from some of the best retail locations around the country!
Our franchisees benefit from trading under one of the biggest brands in the world with access to Tesco’s existing customer base. Operating as ‘Tesco Hand Car Wash’ our franchises are for up to a 5 year term with the option to extend beyond.
Currently we manage more than 200 Tesco hand car washes and on average open a new site every week. We are working hard to deliver Tesco’s values across their hand car wash estate in all aspects of the business: compliance, ethical trading, training, support and by providing the best customer service possible.
Why Franchising?

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 to customers in a convenient wash-while-you-shop business model and an exciting and profitable business opportunity for our operators (franchisees). 

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

• The business system is proven successful 
• You use our know-how and brand name to develop and grow your business
• We ensure that all our sites are compliant for Environmental, Health & Safety and Planning requirements
• You receive a full initial start-up pack of consumables
• 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. reduced buying prices for consumable items; cross-sharing of information
