Grease Monkey Expands to South America, Starting with Columbia
Grease Monkey International, Inc. recently announced the opening of the first Grease Monkey center in Colombia, South America. The center officially opened on November 1, 2016, and is located in the city of Medellín, the second largest city in Colombia.
From center appearance to services offered, the Grease Monkey center in Medellín 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 walk into the center, they are generally surprised it’s an oil change facility — 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 employees to constantly update their knowledge and skills. The employees are eager to be a part of such a customer-driven company.
