August 3, 2021—Take 5 Oil Change on Friday added another store front in Texas.
According to Bluebonnet News, the Take 5 acquired the locally owned Express Lube shop in Liberty, Texas, about 45 miles northeast of Houston. The acquisition was finalized on Friday, July 30.
The store's former owner, Bobby Pope, said he had mixed feelings about selling, but Take 5 "made an offer he could not refuse." according to the report. Take 5 offered to keep all employees of Express Lube on staff.
“I am ready to go do something else. I built this from the ground up, so I am very emotional about selling,” Pope said. “I just want to thank the community for blessing me and my family for all these years. I never would have thought this business would become what it is to the community. It’s been huge.”
The store will close for the next couple of weeks for renovation.
