STC Management, LLC operates 18 Jiffy Lube locations throughout the Washington DC area. The successful company has been recognized by the brand as a past Franchisee of the Year award winner. Now the company will be adding a Mighty Auto Parts store to its portfolio. STC Management is owned and operated by Chris Burns, Gene Turnelle, Brad Turnelle, and Glenn Sanders.
The new deal provides a unique advantage to STC Management’s operations. The Mighty Distributing System is a network of distributors that supply preventive maintenance products and inventory management solutions to automotive service providers (tire dealers, quick lubes, independent shops, car dealerships, and fleets). This new partnership allows STC to become their own parts supplier by implementing Mighty’s product programs, inventory management, and ongoing training.
“We experimented with distribution models before, but they lacked the program support and strength that comes with Mighty. On top of Mighty’s robust programs, integrating a wholesale Mighty division with our Jiffy Lube organization came highly recommended by other large-scale Jiffy Lube operators,” says Chris Burns.
Burns added, “Mighty provides top-shelf product programs and tools necessary for us to gain control of our internal supply needs, as well as the ability to develop new revenue streams through outside sales within our territory. It is truly a win-win for our organization!“
Mighty Auto Parts President & CEO Ken Voelker says, “We are incredibly proud to partner with the team at STC Management, and add another high-caliber Jiffy Lube-affiliated distributor to our franchise system. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with STC and our other valued Jiffy Lube-affiliated partners.”
