How Far We've Come
It just seems appropriate to start the holiday season with Thanksgiving. For us in the quick lube business we have lots to be thankful for. I wish I had the space to list all the things I am thankful for. I guess I can sum it up by saying I am thankful for the people in my life. It is hard to believe 30 years have passed since I started National Oil and Lube News. Reading this months installment of 30 years of NOLN and Franchised: Oilstop has reminded me of all the great people who have gone before us and all the great people who have come beside us during this journey. Some of us old timers remember a time before the quick lubes and how we worried about how we would make it. Now, you look around and quick lubes are in every community.
So, I encourage you to take some time, put your worries aside and reflect on how far we have come. Looking at this year’s Oil Change-Plus survey, the opportunity for growth is incredible. I am convinced our industry will continue to grow as good people continue to join us.
Keep on lubin.'
