"The addition of this business continues our strategy of aggressively expanding Take 5 Oil Change’s differentiated and simple business model through both our company-owned and franchise platforms.”
“Super-Lube has been a great company to own and operate for over 13 years. All our employees work hard and care about their jobs and the communities they represent,” said Tom Chambasian, previous owner of Super-Lube. “We feel good about the company we picked to purchase the business and feel confident that Take 5 will continue to serve our customers with the pride of quality service that has been the foundation of our success.”
The acquisition of Super-Lube expands Take 5 Oil Change’s total network to more than 350 locations in the U.S, including the Company’s first locations in Wisconsin. The acquired quick lube centers will be rebranded over time as Take 5 Oil Change.
