STRICKLAND BROTHERS EXPANDS TO ILLINOIS
November 12, 2020: Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil Change is excited to announce their first set of Illinois franchise owners, husband and wife, Jami and Alisa Guthrie. The couple are set to open six Strickland Brothers service centers in the West Chicago area.
When asked what excited them about the Strickland Brothers Franchise the couple stated “We feel the values of our family and those that Strickland Brothers is founded on are a perfect match. We also appreciate the opportunity of getting in early and helping to build the brand nationally.” What set Strickland brothers apart from other franchise opportunities for Jami and Alisa was “The focus and simplicity of the business model first and foremost. It is clear that it has been honed over the years, optimized, and ready to scale. We also understand it’s a people business, and the culture that has been created at Strickland Brothers is one of the magic ingredients that has impressed us.” When asked what made them want to become entrepreneurs, they say “We want to take our experience and learning from the field of Teaching and Corporate America and apply it to our own family business. We are excited to build something together as a family, in the community, in which we have lived for nearly 30 years.” The couple is excited to grow with Strickland Brothers and look forward to the return-on-investment potential the Strickland Brothers franchise has to offer.
Justin Strickland, CEO & President of Strickland Brothers says “Jami and Alisa had an awesome discovery day with us. I really enjoyed some one on one time with Jami and Alisa on the discovery day getting to know them as people. They are highly intelligent and really seem to align with our mission, nicely. We are very grateful and excited to have them in the Chicago market to pilot the brand. We expect great things from their franchise organization over the coming years.
