Description of franchise system
Jiffy Lube is a well-known auto service franchise that specializes in preventative maintenance to preserve the value and longevity of the vehicle. For nearly 3 decades, Jiffy Lube has been an essential part of the North American driving experience. Jiffy Lube is committed to fast, quality preventative maintenance service to help preserve the health of your vehicle.
Headquartered in Houston, Jiffy Lube International is an indirect subsidiary of Shell Oil Company. Jiffy Lube pioneered the fast oil change industry by establishing the first drive-through service garage in 1979, giving customers quick and professional maintenance service for their vehicles.
Jiffy Lube was originally created to fill the gap left behind by the departure of full-service gas stations and the emergence of the self-serve model. It also helped with the shift from the do-it-yourself oil change market to the installed motor oil market. In the following 20 years after it’s founding, more than half the growth in the installed market went to fast lubes. Jiffy Lube led the way in this new market development.
Jiffy Lube attracts loyal repeat customers with its business strategy of quick and quality auto-care coupled with readily accessible Jiffy Lube locations across the United States. They strive to put the satisfaction of the customer first with straightforward, honest diagnosis, fair price quoting, and fast repair and maintenance.
These are the commitments that Jiffy Lube requires of all of its trusted franchiselocations and the business practice that has led to the franchise's respected status all throughout the United States.
With more than 2,000 service centers in North America, Jiffy Lube International, Inc. has the largest system of franchised and company-operated service centers in the rapidly growing "fast lube" industry, servicing approximately 27.5 million customers each year. A switch from the do-it-yourself to the installed motor oil market is expanding rapidly. Jiffy Lube projects that about half the growth in the installed market will go to the fast lube category.
Over the next 10 years, the fast lube industry will need to expand to service more than 120 million vehicles a year. This means it is a prime time for entrepreneurs to start their own franchises. 88% of Jiffy Lube service centers are franchised, the rest are company owned and operated. Franchise opportunities are currently readily available in the United Sates and Canada.

Technology - you'll receive a point-of-sale computer system that enables all franchisees to record customer and marketing data, to identify automobile service requirements and identify strengths and weaknesses in their operations.
Franchise partner profile
The most successful franchisees are those who give their businesses their personal attention. Consequently, Jiffy Lube is searching for franchisees that will be personally involved in the operation of their service centers, not those who merely have money to invest.
Jiffy Lube is looking for individuals who are committed and conscientious. The franchisees must have the ability - and the desire - to learn and follow a franchise format. The fast lube business requires individuals with strong interpersonal skills who can manage and motivate their employees and grow their customer base.
