Valvoline opens 1,000th quick lube franchise site

Valvoline announced its 1,000th franchised quick lube location on February 8th, operated by Quality Automotive Services (QAS) in Raleigh, North Carolina, U.S.A.

Valvoline is a leading quick lube service provider focused on reliable preventive auto maintenance. With nearly 1,900 locations across North America, Valvoline’s network performed around 27 million services last year, achieving 17 straight years of same-store sales growth.  

The milestone Valvoline Instant Oil Change outlet marks more than 20 years of partnership with Valvoline’s largest franchisee QAS. The 166-location chain now spans 13 states in the United States. 

“Our franchise partners drive tremendous growth, and I’m proud to celebrate this achievement with them and Valvoline’s whole team,” said Valvoline CEO Lori Flees.

With 38 added in the first quarter of 2024, Valvoline progresses toward its goal of more than 3,500 company and franchise locations. Its preventive maintenance model was number 1 on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 this year.

“We knew from our first site this would be a strong partnership with Valvoline,” said QAS CEO Matt McKeown. “We look forward to bringing service to many more communities.”
