Chicago, IL, March 25, 2021
Monroe Capital LLC today announced an increase in its credit facility to Mammoth Holdings, LLC (“Mammoth”) to support the acquisition of Lulu’s Express (“Lulu’s”).

Lulu’s is a six unit express conveyor car wash operator in Georgia and South Carolina. The addition of Lulu’s further expands the Mammoth’s “customer-focused” and “operator-focused” conveyor carwash platform and aligns with the platform’s continued growth strategy.
