SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yoshi, which provides the most widely used subscription service for on-site car maintenance and refueling, announced today that it is expanding its service to the Tampa/St. Petersburg and Minneapolis/St. Paul twin city areas.

Yoshi delivers gas, oil changes, car washes, and other car maintenance services directly to customers’ cars while they are parked, eliminating the need to stop for gas or track and schedule routine maintenance. Yoshi’s service is a favorite of many daily commuters across the country - in addition to Tampa/St. Petersburg and Minneapolis/St. Paul, the service is currently operating in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, Austin, Atlanta, Chicago and Nashville.

Yoshi selected Tampa/St. Petersberg and Minneapolis/St. Paul as expansion cities due to their high proportions of car commuters.

“Frequent stops at the gas station and service station for fueling and maintenance are a nuisance and an interruption for today’s busy consumers,” said Yoshi CEO Nick Alexander. “Yoshi was designed to help make car owners’ lives easier, delivering on-site refueling and car maintenance to give people back some time in their day. It has proven to very popular in each city we’re in, with double-digit growth each month - we’re looking forward to the same great reception in the Tampa and Minneapolis areas.”

Earlier this month, General Motors Ventures and ExxonMobil led a $13.7M Series A round of funding for Yoshi. At the time, Yoshi expressed its intent to accelerate its geographic expansion, with a plan to be in 25 cities by the end of the year.

In Tampa/St. Petersburg, Yoshi is currently offering service in downtown and north St. Petersburg and South Tampa. In Minneapolis/St. Paul, Yoshi is currently offering service to downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul in addition to Edina and Woodbury. In both areas, Yoshi plans to expand its coverage quickly.

Customers can sign up for a free trial month at, and also receive a $10 credit with codes MINIAPPLE for Minneapolis area customers and BIGGUAVA for Tampa area customers.
