Why Invest In A Franchise?

With a leadership team comprised of former owner-operators with extensive experience in senior-level roles on the franchisor side, Grease Monkey® possesses the industry knowledge that positions its franchisees for success. We can help you grow because we've been there ourselves.

 

Driven By A Proven Strategy

Our focus on being our customer’s trusted partner dictates the way we operate and the way we train. We show you our proven approach that has helped drive high customer retention rates so that you and your crew can deliver on the Grease Monkey promise of superior service time and again.

Backed By Industry
Veterans.

With over 70 years of combined experience, Grease Monkey is part of the FullSpeed Automotive™ family of brands, one of the nation’s largest franchisors of automotive service centers. We’re not owned by an oil company, which means there is no obligation to buy a specified brand of products, letting us negotiate the best possible pricing for our franchisees. We make recommendations without dictating what products franchisees must use, keeping our owner-operators in the driver's seat.

Low-Cost Build Options

In addition to acquiring a model that allows for build-outs to be tailored to the area being served, franchise owners can add on an additional revenue stream through our Monkey Shine® Car Wash. In addition, Grease Monkey and Monkey Shine® facilities are relatively simple to operate, with a streamlined operating environment and limited inventory requirements. We don’t require our franchisees to have experience in the automotive industry because we provide comprehensive training and support in all aspects of center operations.


Proudly Independent

Grease Monkey is not owned by a major oil company. This means that we can focus on providing customers the best products and services in a way that reinforces our goal of being their trusted partner.

Our Guarantees Keep
Customers Coming Back

The Certified Pit Crew Time Guarantee: Grease Monkey knows that our customers’ time is valuable. That’s why our Certified Pit Crew provides a service time promise to customers right up front. Customers watch the Pit Crew Timer countdown, and for every minute over that promise, we refund our customer $1. Get In. Get Out. Get Going. ™

Next Level Training and Operations

The Certified Pit Crew program is a cornerstone of the Grease Monkey® business model, requiring our teams to deliver speed, quality and a remarkable experience to every customer, at every service visit. Most of our franchisees do not have prior experience in the automotive service industry–they come from almost every walk of life and background imaginable. If you like people, have a hunger to be successful in a business of your own, are willing to follow proven systems and methods of operation and have the capacity to learn, you can be successful owning a Grease Monkey Franchise business. We will provide the training you need prior to your opening and on an ongoing basis. Training is conducted in our corporate headquarters as well as in the field and we offer an online university that is available 24/7 for you and your employees. Our newsletters, webinars, regional training and convention offer additional training and support, so you can be in business for yourself, but not by yourself.
