November 02, 2016 // Franchising.com // Denver, Colo. – Grease Monkey International, Inc. is excited to announce the opening of the first Grease Monkey® center in Colombia, South America. The center officially opens on November 1, 2016 and is located in the city of Medelli?n, the second largest city in Colombia.
From center appearance to services offered, the Grease Monkey center in Medelli?n is a unique business in Colombia. The center’s appearance is truly spectacular because of the detailed work that went into building it. One example of the extraordinary work that went into the design of the building is the hand-painted epoxy floor in the bay. When customers walked into the center, they could not believe it was an oil change facility - it looked so nice, some of them thought it was a restaurant.
The development of this center is a huge accomplishment for Grease Monkey International, Inc. and especially for the Owner, Juan Luis, and his team in Colombia.
“The amount of time and effort Juan Luis put into the center to mirror the Grease Monkey model is astonishing. There were many hurdles to overcome with sourcing items in Colombia, but Juan Luis was very diligent,” said Rick Juarez, Director of Purchasing and Corporate Regional Director of Grease Monkey International, Inc.
Grease Monkey Colombia has a bright future to look forward to. The center itself is equipped with a training facility, which will allow for employees to constantly update their knowledge and skills. The employees are eager to be a part of such a customer driven company.
Founded in 1978 and headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Grease Monkey® International, Inc. is one of the largest automotive maintenance franchisors – not owned by a major oil company – with more than 300 centers currently located in the United States, Mexico, South America and looking forward to the addition of centers in Saudi Arabia in early 2017. Grease Monkey centers focus on providing a “less hassle, more hustle” customer experience to fit the busy lives of the driving public by meeting its vehicle maintenance needs. Grease Monkey centers provide oil changes and other services that meet or exceed vehicle owner’s manual specifications and maintain warranty requirements. Other services include fluid, filter and tire maintenance, as well as brake services.
