Founded in Metairie, LA in 1984, Take 5 Oil Change’s mission is to provide fast, friendly, affordable oil changes with emphasis on an exceptional customer experience. By combining the highest level of employee training and development with decades of industry experience, we have perfected the drive-thru oil change model into a finely tuned, highly efficient process.
To date, Take 5 and its affiliates operate 300 Take 5 branded locations in 13 states, with plans to enter five new states and expand by more than 80 locations in the next year. Our long term goal is expanding our company-owned and franchised store footprint to more than 2,000 locations within ten years.
"Let us change your oil, not your schedule." Our model is designed for speed and convenience with our unique “stay-in-your-car” experience. On average, our oil changes care completed in eight minutes. Combined with our focused menu, we increase efficiency and improve quality while staying strategically aimed at the highest-margin product mix.
Educated Sales Approach
At Take 5, we believe in educating our customers on what they need and giving them exactly what they want. The Take 5 training program guides each of our techs and greeters on how to bring our vision to life – what we like to call “running the model.” As a result, we have one of the highest customer loyalty rates in the automotive aftermarket.
Getting an oil change doesn't need to be painful, and at Take 5, we make it fun. By running our Take 5 model, we create a comfortable environment where each customer is offered a cold drink and snacks for the kids in the back seat. We have even been known to keep treats on hand for those furry friends. The results speak for themselves - in 2016, Take 5 scored an average 9.3 out of 10 possible points in an independent customer satisfaction survey.
