Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil Change announces their newest franchise owners, brothers Ajay and Nikhil Patel. The Patel Brothers are set to open two Strickland Brothers service centers in the Richmond, Virginia area.
Ajay expressed what attracted him to SB was Strickland Brother’s ability to turn “an inconvenient service [into] a quick and easy task for today’s fast paced environment. [Also], Strickland Brothers gave us the opportunity to meet with the founder and CEO in person. We’re not seen as just numbers in their books, we’re actually treated like partners.”
Ajay has 10+ years of experience in the hospitality and convenience store industry, and desired to amplify his knowledge and learn more “about a new industry, while bringing my past experiences to the table.” Ajay and Nikhil’s zeal for entrepreneurship coupled with their passion for automobiles is what drove them to seek out becoming franchise owners of Strickland Brothers. Once they learned about the family-oriented background of SB, they felt they had found a great fit. Ajay stated, “I really enjoyed meeting with Justin and learning about how Strickland Brothers was founded. Family is very important to me and learning that Strickland Brothers was based off of a father’s love for his two sons shows how much family truly means to this company.”
Founder and CEO, Justin Strickland, voiced his excitement in adding to the Strickland Brother’s family, “Ajay and Nikhil are young, energetic and have a long career ahead of them. They are familiar with business at a young age and have plenty of customer service experience which matters to our brand. As previously stated in other releases, we want folks that embody our core values and our culture. We believe that Ajay and Nikhil will hold these values close as they bring Strickland Brothers to southern Richmond, VA.”
