(Spiffy), an on-demand car care, technology, and services company, today announced the closing of a $5m Series A investment led by Bull City Venture Partners.

"We are really excited to back Scot again and look forward to helping Spiffy scale to a very large company," said Jason Caplain, General Partner at Bull City Venture Partners. "Spiffy is delivering a unique and unparalleled customer experience that customers love both @work and @home."
Spiffy's Series A also included investments by West Palm Beach-based car wash operator and investor, Development 72, LLC, Durham-based IDEA Fund Partners and San Francisco-based Industry Ventures.
"As physical car wash operators, we believe the future is on-demand wash and detail. We evaluated several opportunities and decided to invest in Spiffy because of their innovative technology, green approach and focus on delivering the best customer experience possible," said Julius Numas, CEO of Development 72, LLC.
Los Angeles Expansion:
In addition to the Series A funding, Spiffy is announcing the acquisition of ongoing operations from Squeegy. This acquisition will allow Spiffy to provide services for the over 14,000 residential and commercial relationships previously serviced by Squeegy.
"2017 is off to a great start for Spiffy. On the heels of over 150% growth from 2015 to 2016, we are hitting the ground running in 2017 with our first institutional investment and the acquisition of Squeegy's operations," said Scot Wingo, Spiffy's CEO.
"We considered several different options for our customers and chose Spiffy because of its mix of excellent technology on the app/web front-end and operational excellence combined with an eco-friendly priority on the operations side," said Andrew Davis, Squeegy CEO.
Spiffy has made it very convenient for Squeegy users to make the switch. Existing Squeegy users can just update their Squeegy app, log in with their existing credentials and they are ready to go. Spiffy started commercial operations in Los Angeles on 2/13 and residential will launch 2/20.
