“Last year, we doubled the number of new Jiffy Lube service centers opened over the previous year and are purposely maintaining our aggressive growth strategy,” said Patrick Southwick, president of Jiffy Lube International, Inc. “Jiffy Lube is known for speed and convenience, and one important aspect of convenience is providing the right services in the right location. We are delivering exactly that as we methodically plan our growth.”
On average, Jiffy Lube has added between two and three franchisee-owned service centers per month since the beginning of 2017, with plans to increase year on year growth projections.
Chris Dykes, director of network development for Jiffy Lube International, Inc. added, “We offer several incentive programs and provide numerous resources to support new growth to help existing and prospective Jiffy Lube franchisees grow their business, whether the franchisee is looking to self-develop new locations, participate in a ‘turn key’ Build to Suit program, or anything in between.”
As brands like Jiffy, Take 5 Oil Change and Valvoline rapidly expand and the quick lube market continues to grow, independents can still find ways to get this market share back, as Ratchet+Wrench reported in July.
