Grease Monkey



Grease Monkey has pioneered flexible franchising, a way for franchisees to customize their facilities and services for different markets and investment profiles. We also offer the most franchisee friendly franchise agreements in the industry.

Our development options range from a standard three-bay oil change and preventive maintenance franchise to an eight-bay full service maintenance facility. Whatever options suit your needs, we’ll help you determine the optimal configuration.

What’s more, since we’re the only major quick lube concept that’s not owned by an oil company, we are able to negotiate national vendor contracts at the best possible prices. It also means consumers can feel confident that we’re looking out for their vehicles, not just pushing a particular brand of oil.


Grease Monkey technicians are trained as a team of professionals—a Certified Pit Crew—to provide excellent service to our customers and their vehicles. Modeled after a racing team pit crew, our Certified Pit Crew program inspires our crews to embrace and exemplify customer focus, professionalism, hustle, enthusiasm, and precision teamwork. Achieving the Certified Pit Crew status is a point of pride, requiring all employees in a center to undergo our custom training curriculum.

Service, Done Right. On Time, Guaranteed!

Developed as a true differentiator in the industry, the Grease Monkey Pit Crew Guarantee® was designed to show our customers we value their time. Either we complete their service within a promised time, or they receive a discount. The Grease Monkey Pit Crew Guarantee defines who we are and what we do!


We’ve carefully developed a proven and dynamic System of Operation, ensuring the viability and long-term success of the brand and our franchisees. The Grease Monkey System is designed to guide franchisees through every aspect of running a profitable automotive maintenance business. Whether you’ve been a “grease monkey” all your life, or you don’t know the first thing about changing oil, we’re here with the right training and support tools, from startup to mature business stage.
