A Take 5 Oil Change two years in the making has opened its doors in Longmont, Colorado, the Longmont Leader reports.
Franchise owner Kelly Meyer, who owns two other Take 5 locations in Loveland and Arvada, said that the Longmont location has taken him the longest to complete.
The Pizza Hut that formerly occupied the 2255 Main Street spot was torn down, and construction on Meyer’s first ground-up Take 5 location had begun earlier this year.
The store’s grand opening was celebrated this past Tuesday alongside the Longmont Area Chamber of Commerce.
To commemorate the memories the community had with the Pizza Hut that had previously held the spot, Meyer had pizza from another Pizza Hut freshly delivered to the event.
With the Longmont location now in operation, Meyer hopes to provide quality service for his customers, making it customary to offer a bottle of water for their 10 to 11-minute visit.
“People don’t usually write reviews about an oil change, but we have all these customers writing about their great experiences,” Meyer said. “Maybe that says something about what people expect from automotive service more generally, but it’s important to me that people leave here feeling good. We are part of the community, and we want to be a positive addition in every way possible.”
