Yoshi, the gas delivery and auto services company, officially opened its brand new headquarters in Nashville with an official ribbon cutting and meeting with Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee.
The company, which was previously headquartered in San Francisco, chose to move its headquarters to Nashville during the pandemic. Yoshi provides safe, contactless and convenient service by delivering fuel and car care to where its customers are parked. The start-up was founded in 2015 as a direct-to-consumer refueling company, and since then has expanded the service menu on its platform with additional offerings (including light maintenance, car washes, details, oil changes, etc.). The company has also opened up its services to fleets and businesses, while continuing to expand its business portfolio nationwide.
Yoshi was co-founded by CEO Bryan Frist, originally from Nashville, alongside co-founders Nick Alexander and Dan Hunter.
“Nashville has always been one of our largest and fastest growing markets,” said CEO Bryan Frist. “So we’re really excited to officially open the doors to our headquarters here and continue to strengthen our team as we expand our services across the country. “
Yoshi has 100 employees across the country and is looking to hire 100 more in the Nashville area over the next two years. Major investors include GM Ventures and ExxonMobil, as well as famous investors such as NBA All-Star Kevin Durant and NFL legend Joe Montana.
Yoshi offers its customers a full range of services at a time when the automotive and fuel industries move towards contactless options and self-service innovation. The start-up has already fully integrated with a number of connected car platforms, including General Motors’ OnStar program. With this integration, vehicle owners with OnStar can enjoy a truly seamless customer experience, as Yoshi can deliver bespoke delivery services, when needed and when needed, through a live data feed. on the vehicle’s maintenance and refueling needs.
In 2021, Yoshi officially moved its headquarters in Nashville. During the pandemic, public interest in contactless delivery services increased. Among the organizations most interested are corporate clients and property managers looking for innovative services for their employees when they return to work. Human resources departments have been particularly keen to integrate Yoshi into their “return to work” programs for staff returning to offices.
