NC Based Company Continues to Expand Throughout the Country.
Winston-Salem, NC, June 21, 2022 —
Bringing a breath of fresh air into the oil change industry, Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil change announces the opening of its 100th store. With 70 corporate stores and 30 Franchise locations, Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil change is a rapidly growing local company that is creating a buzz in the industry for its customer-centric model. “Our 100th location is a significant milestone that we are extremely proud of here at Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil Change,” said founder and CEO Justin Strickland, “… and we are just getting started!”.
“I think our success can be attributed to a clear focus on the customer experience, a streamlined business model and a group of “SHARP” franchisees and employees who genuinely care about more than just cars.” SHARP is an acronym for the company’s core values of: Servant Leadership, Humility, Ambition, Reliability and Professionalism. Justin says he learned those values from his family and is committed to improving the lives of the people who work with him, and enhancing the communities where Strickland Brothers operates.
The 100th store is owned by Martin Evans & Gianna Venturi and is located in Snyder, TX. Martin and Gianna have committed to 15 Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil Change franchise locations in the Dallas area, and this store is their second one to open.
Martin said, “When we were looking at businesses to invest in, a strong business model at the store level was a no-brainer, but we wanted a company that had a heart and a value-set that agreed with ours. Strickland Brothers has been just that, with a deep focus on customers, community and employees.” Gianna added, “Justin Strickland is a large part of why we decided to buy into Strickland Brothers. He is inspirational in so many ways – he succeeded against all odds, with pure resilience, passion and hard work. And he has not lost his heart and value set while doing that – treating people well, and doing the right thing, always. That is how we operate, so it made it a perfect match!”
Strickland says “We are proud of what we’ve accomplished in a short amount of time. We will continue to take care of our neighbors (aka: customers) and try to give them positive experiences every time they stop by to see us.”
About Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil Change
Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil Change, headquartered in Winston-Salem, NC, is one of the fastest-growing franchises in the United States. Founded in 2016, SBOC operates 100 stores in 20 states and has contracted over 242 franchise locations projected to open across the country by 2024. Strickland Brothers started in 2016 when CEO and founder, Justin Strickland, was working as a lube tech and realized that there was room for innovation in the oil change industry. Justin’s grandfather believed in him and his dream. After being turned down by multiple banks, Justin’s grandfather, a tobacco sharecropper, offered to put their family home up for collateral so that Justin could open his first oil change location. His grandfather’s values serve as the foundation for the Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil Change core values of Servant Leadership, Humility, Ambition, Reliability, and Professionalism. Today, you will find a “PawPaw’s Bench” outside every corporate and franchise location in honor of C.W. Strickland, who passed away July 19, 2014.
Strickland Brother’s mantra, “We care about more than your car” is evident through several upcoming initiatives like the Community Hero program, which supports Educators, Police, Fire, EMS, Healthcare workers and Animal Care workers, and the “Make a Change” program which will provide ongoing support to the Alzheimer’s Association and Autism Speaks by way of customer and employee donations.
Strickland proudly proclaims, “We care about our families, our neighbors, and our communities. That’s what makes us different.”
