Stamp of approval

July 6, 2022—A Valvoline Instant Oil Change location has been approved for a Connecticut community. 

According to the Journal Inquirer, the Planning and Zoning Commission of Vernon, Connecticut, unanimously approved a location at a recent meeting. The application for the drive-thru Valvoline location was filed by Allan Borghesi of Borghesi Building & Engineering Co., Inc. of Torrington, Connecticut. 

The approved parcel of land is next to a Mr. Sparkle car wash location, and part of this purchase for Valvoline includes upgrading this existing car wash as well. 

According to Economic Development Director Shaun Gately, Valvoline has purchased several Mr. Sparkle car washes in the northern-central area of Connecticut. Valvoline has proceeded to turn those purchased locations into Valvoline Oil Changes. 

However, the plans for Vernon are to maintain two separate parcels for the Valvoline Instant Oil Change and Mr. Sparkle locations. 

Some of the requirements of approval for Valvoline at this location, according to meeting minutes, include completing all work indoors, properly disposing of tires and not keeping them stored outside as well as limiting the size of the building's outdoor display. 

Gately shared with the Journal Inquirer that the town now needs to approve building plans, and then Valvoline can officially begin construction.
