Laredo's Newest Quick Lube, Car Wash Facility Opens
Grease Monkey of Laredo, Laredo’s newest quick lube and express car wash facility, celebrated its grand opening Friday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at its newly-opened location on 2518 Bob Bullock Loop.
Owners Robert and Amy Rodriguez were joined by Laredo Chamber of Commerce officials and members, Laredo Daybreak rotarians, and family and friends to celebrate.
Grease Monkey of Laredo is extending the festivities into a weekend full of refreshments, prize drawings, and super savings.
The community is invited to come see NASCAR’S Tony Stewart’s No. 14 Mobil 1 Chevrolet.
Grease Monkey is the largest independent quick lube operation in the country.
Founded in 1978 and headquartered in Denver Colorado, Grease Monkey currently has more than 300 centers operating in the United States, Latin America and China.
Grease Monkey provides preventive maintenance services, such as full service oil changes, for cars, trucks and SUVs.
With each full service oil change, Grease Monkey provides a complete review of the vehicle’s maintenance needs and includes a 16-point maintenance inspection.
The Grease Monkey certified pit crew program offers customers a service experience that is unrivaled in the quick lube industry, a news release states.
Grease Monkey of Laredo features the company’s Monkey Shine express car wash concept.
The Monkey Shine express car wash provides a fully automated exterior express car wash experience at speeds of up to 70 cars per hour with available full service cleaning for the interior and exterior.
Grease Monkey of Laredo is locally owned and operated by Robert and Amy Rodriguez.
Robert is a native South Texan who brought his family to Laredo over five years ago.
Amy is a Vermont native who quickly fell in love with the Laredo community.
After 15 years of working for the federal government and moving all over the world, Robert and Amy decided to unpack their boxes for good and stay in Laredo.
They chose to open Grease Monkey in Laredo due the welcoming business environment, strong economic growth and most importantly the warm support they received from their friends, family and the community.
Amy and Robert said they are excited to have the opportunity to bring Grease Monkey to the community and providing over 20 new jobs through their new venture.
