The Strickland Brothers story


Justin Strickland was working for Mark Agan as a Pit Tech. Justin wanted to own his own auto business so the pair partnered to purchase a full-service gas station in Welcome, NC. They sold snacks, pumped gas, and did anything they could to break even. While running the gas station, Justin dreamed of owning his own Lube Center.

Justin’s Grandfather ‘Paw Paw’ saw Justin’s dream being met with overwhelming rejection. He surprised Justin with a $35,000 check, which he received from taking out a loan against the family home, to help Justin open his first Quick Lube.

Justin and Mark opened their first facility in Greensboro, NC called Taterbugs (after Justin’s first son Tate). They sold the gas station to run Taterbugs full time. Soon after, they sold Taterbugs to acquire the capital to build a national brand
