Grease Monkey | International Franchise Association
Grease Monkey Franchises Available

The Grease Monkey platform guides franchisees through every aspect of running a profitable quick lube and preventive maintenance business.



Grease Monkey is one of the few quick lube franchises in the top ten with positive growth.  Moved from number ten to number one in franchise rankings. 


Grease Monkey has also been selected as the “winner” of the 2018 FranCompare™ Franchise Recognition Program. After comparing and weighing over 40 FDD-based data points for four of the major franchise systems in the Lubrication & Oil Change Services industry (Grease Monkey, Take 5, Jiffy Lube, and Valvoline Instant Oil Change), Grease Monkey received the highest score.



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 8-bay full service maintenance facility, and a car wash facility can be added to any set-up. 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.



Each and every employee is required to be PIT CREW CERTIFIED.  Certification is performed through extensive video instruction and testing via our proprietary online FullSpeed University.  Only upon certification are all employees in the center able to order and wear pit crew uniforms.  The pit crew uniforms are a badge of honor and a visual assurance to the customer we value their vehicle and their business.


When we say “Only What You Need, Guaranteed,” we’re making a promise to our customers - the same one we’ve been keeping for 40 years. It’s a commitment to providing honest and dependable service with convenience and value. It means establishing trust with the families in our communities, expanding a loyal consumer base from one generation of drivers to the next.


It’s all part of our “Less Hassle, More Hustle” philosophy - a conviction that’s helped build our reputation as one of the nation’s most trusted quick lube franchise companies.



It’s time to capitalize on the Automotive Repair Aftermarket and Maintenance industry’s long-term growth by joining Grease Monkey’s national expansion. With new single and multi-unit franchise opportunities available across the country, we’re looking for exceptional partners to grow with us!  We have U.S. and international territories available, and are registered in all 50 states.
