Take 5 Oil Change is waving the green flag in Hickory, North Carolina, signifying the start of a new era of oil change services locally.

Now open at 2920 North Center Street, Take 5 Oil Change’s unique drive-thru model allows customers to relax in the comfort of their car at all times for a complete oil change in less than 10 minutes.

In celebration of the new location, Take 5 Oil Change is hosting a grand opening event. From 10 a.m. – noon on May 25 Hickory’s Take 5 team is pulling out all the stops. Kasey Kahne, 18-time NASCAR winner, as well as Mayor Hank Guess, will be present for the ribbon cutting ceremony. Autographs and photos with Kahne will be available. Free food will be offered to the community from OOO Wee BBQ, while classic jams are played by WAIZ 63. Take 5 Oil Change will also be awarding free oil change services to lucky residents attending the grand opening.

“There are few things more important to consumers than their car…and their time. It certainly holds true right here in Hickory, where we are giving our customers the best of both worlds, providing high quality service in a quick, convenient way,” said Gabe Mendoza, president of Take 5 Oil Change. “Opening in Hickory serves as an important piece of our growth in the region and continues our strategic expansion into markets that we know will appreciate our service style.”

Long admired among drivers for its unique stay-in-your-car service, the popularity of Take 5 Oil Change has skyrocketed recently as the brand has grown from less than fifty locations to more than 250 throughout select U.S. markets in the past three years. Plus, the concept’s customer-centric approach commands broad appeal, fostering a touch of education versus the typical hard sell that is common in aftermarket automotive service environments.

“We have the benefit of more than 30 years of experience combined with a strong injection of innovation that embodies our brand,” added Mendoza. “As a disruptive force, we are more than happy to become a game-changer in the local car care scene.”

Backing the company’s sustained growth is its connection to Driven Brands, the parent company of North America’s leading automotive aftermarket brands, including Meineke, Maaco, Carstar and 1-800-Radiator.
