What is a typical purchase transaction of established full-service carwash (or gas station)?

In the past, I have purchased a few small businesses, no more than $150k. I paid all cash in some, and some % down with owner carry. I was wondering what are the typical full-service carwash (with or without real estate) business purchase transactions are since they are relatively more expensive than most small businesses.

In California, they are going to be more expensive than many other states because of the cost of land, if you buy the property. They also tend to be a bit more expensive generally, because of the cash that normally is associated with the Revenue.
