Take 5 Oil Change Acquires QuickStop Oilube
Take 5 Oil Change recently announced the acquisition of QuickStop Oilube of Burlington, Kentucky, which operates 10 locations in the greater Cincinnati market. The acquisition marks Take 5 Oil Change’s entry into the Cincinnati market, as well as the states of Indiana and Kentucky.
QuickStop Oilube was founded in 1987 by Jeff and Cathie Simmons and is headquartered in Burlington, Kentucky. QuickStop Oilube has four locations in Ohio, five locations in Kentucky and one location in Indiana. These locations will convert to the Take 5 Oil Change format over the coming months and Take 5 Oil Change will now operate 47 locations in Ohio, with five in Kentucky and one in Indiana.
“I’m thrilled to bring the speed and efficiency of Take 5 Oil Change to the greater Cincinnati market,” said Marc Graham, Take 5 CEO and group president of Driven Brands’ Quick Lube division. “The opening of 10 locations across Cincinnati and the entry into two new states is significant and a great complement to our other Ohio locations, ensuring drivers throughout the region can experience an efficient, friendly, high-quality oil change with low-pressure sales.”
Jeff Simmons, owner of QuickStop Oilube stated, “Take 5 was selected as the successor to our QuickStop Oilube stores because it is a solid and growing national player in the convenient oil change business. This position will allow them to continue to serve our loyal customers we have earned over the last 30 years and offer excellent opportunities for our employees, as well.”
