October 13 , 2020: Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil Change is excited to announce their newest Franchise owners in the Cypress Texas area as well as the Pensacola Florida area, Spencer Grogan and Dustin Gay. Spencer will be developing 3 locations in Texas and partnering with Dustin on a 2 store development deal in Florida. When Spencer is not spending time with his family, traveling, hunting, fishing and exercising, Spencer is currently working on his Executive MBA at Rice University. He desired to become an entrepreneur because “I’ve worked for large corporations most of my life. Building a business that provides employment, a constructive culture for team members, and the ability to be in control of my destiny has been my long-term goal for many years.” And he feels he has found the perfect match with his Strickland Brothers franchise outlets. Spencer stated, “There were three key factors that set Strickland Brothers apart from other franchise opportunities. The first was that it is in a predictable industry and is resilient against pandemic induced risks. The second factor was the simplicity and scalability of the Strickland Brothers model. Simplicity is not to be confused with easy. The third factor was the focus and dedication that the Strickland Brothers team puts into improving business processes and driving efficiencies for their corporate businesses and franchise owners. The informal conversations with Justin and the Strickland Brothers team gave me the opportunity to get to know each of them better. Gaining insight into who they are as people and their character was what ultimately made me choose Strickland Brothers. Franchisors and franchisees are ultimately business partners, and a good business partner can make work much more enjoyable and productive.” Spencer continued I’m excited to work with the Strickland Brothers team on a day-to-day basis while building out our franchise units. Their culture of servant leadership and customer service aligns well with my own culture and the culture I would like to build into my business.”

Justin Strickland, CEO of Strickland Brothers states, “Spencer will bring a lot of value to the Strickland Brothers brand. Throughout the education process and discovery day, we felt that his values and goals were in sync with how we wanted our brand to be portrayed. Spencer is joining another tremendous franchise owner in Cypress, TX and we expect that together, they will represent Strickland Brothers very well. We are very grateful for the new partnerships.”
