Valvoline has announced the opening of its 1000th franchise-operated location in a recent press release.
Located in Raleigh, North Carolina, the new store is owned by Quality Automotive Services, LLC (QAS), one of Valvoline’s biggest franchise partners that has worked with the company for over 20 years. The three-bay facility marks QAS’ 166th Valvoline location, with its stores spanning across 13 states.
Having only just recently surpassed a milestone of 900 franchise stores, Valvoline is rapidly expanding, having already opened 38 new stores in the first quarter of its 2024 fiscal year. The company now operates a total of 1,900 retail locations and has a goal of launching more than 3,500 locations going forward.
“When we opened our first Valvoline Instant Oil Change location in 2001, we knew it was the beginning of a strong partnership with Valvoline,” stated QAS CEO Matt McKeown. “We're excited to be a part of this milestone with the company and look forward to many more years of bringing quick, easy, and trusted automotive preventive services to even more communities.”
