March 30, 2016 // Franchising.com // Greenwood Village, Colo. – Grease Monkey International, Inc. is excited to announce the opening of a second center in Phoenix, Arizona. Grease Monkey® - Phoenix opened its doors for business on March 9, 2016. The center was welcomed into the community with its grand opening party on March 25 and 26.
Present at the event were the Mobil 1 NASCAR simulator and Tony Stewart’s No.14 Mobil 1 Chevrolet, both of which were a hit with the crowd. There were also lots of giveaways, free food and refreshments, and exclusive grand opening discounts on oil changes as well as other services. Throughout the weekend the center had the pleasure of servicing many vehicles and meeting many new citizens of the local community.
Both of the centers in Phoenix are owned by brothers, Laurence and Scott Stinson. Their franchising journey with Grease Monkey® began in September of 2015. Within a few months of being in business, the Stinson brothers decided to expand their services by setting up a new location.
