Tennessee Business Owner Becomes Costa Oil Franchisee

Feb. 28, 2024
Though he will be focusing on the new location for the foreseeable future, Asfand Sheikh plans to open more locations in the Chattanooga region.

A business owner in Hixson, Tennessee, recently decided to become a Costa Oil 10 Minute Oil Change franchisee, reports the Chattanooga Times Free Press.

Though Asfand Sheikh opened an ice cream and milkshake shop last year, he’s already jumped into another business endeavor: a Costa Oil location at 4717 Hixson Pike that opened just this past weekend.

The shop will be offering a 50% discount throughout March to celebrate its opening, with Sheikh focusing on offering customers quality service without the up-selling and add-ons he often hears customers complain of.

The 4,160 square feet building being leased for the new store was originally built in 1986 and has since housed a car wash and oil change shop as well as a used car lot.

Since first launching in 2013, Costa Oil has grown to 46 locations across the United States. Though Sheikh will be focusing on the new Hixson location for the foreseeable future, he plans to open more locations in the Chattanooga region and believes the area he’s in offers a large opportunity for business.

“I think Hixson offers a real potential for small businesses,” said Sheikh. “Hixson Pike has a lot of traffic and potential customers.”
