Tamarac, FL, December 5, 2016 - SONNY'S Enterprises, Inc., the world's largest manufacturer of conveyorized car washing equipment, today announced a partnership with Sentinel Capital Partners, in a move to expand the scope of products and services it provides to its clients.

Washing cars since 1949, SONNY'S will continue to be managed by the same family which has run the business since its inception, led by CEO Paul Fazio. "From the first conversation, it was clear that Sentinel was very different from any other firm that had contacted me in the past. Partnering with them would allow SONNY'S to deliver our clients an even higher level of customer service and one-source access to everything they need for their success. My family will maintain a substantial ownership stake. SONNY'S team will continue to run our company, and we'll be able to quickly expand the number of world class products and services we provide. It's an approach that makes a lot of sense for me, my company, and most importantly, my clients," said Mr. Fazio. "The industry is changing and expanding at a faster pace than we have seen in the past. With Sentinel behind us, SONNY'S can more rapidly deliver the innovations our clients need to grow their businesses."
