Periodic testing ensures precise chemical metering and reliably consistent delivery ratios so our car wash systems properly clean vehicles for each local driving environment.
Our Franchise Difference
Low Start Up Costs
Start-Up Cost Range: $154,195 – $319,850 (*2014 estimate).
Grease Monkey Franchising offers a flexible approach to franchising, so you can customize your facility and menu of services for your specific market and your investment profile. We can even retrofit existing quick lube facilities to help provide operators with reduced start-up options, creating lower break-evens and faster development.
The Grease Monkey® brand is not owned by an oil company. This means there is no obligation to buy a specified brand of products, allowing us to negotiate the best possible pricing for our franchise owners. We make recommendations to our franchisees, without dictating what products they must use.
Unparalleled Support You’re in Business For Yourself, but Not By Yourself!
The Grease Monkey® System is designed to guide franchise owners through every aspect of running a profitable automotive maintenance business. Grease Monkey® franchisees are fully supported in all aspects of:

Our Franchise Edge
Grease Monkey® technicians are trained and skilled in automotive maintenance, and work together as a team of professionals to service customer vehicles. We offer an intensive Technician Training & Certification Program for each key position to ensure professional, quality service.
To ensure superior customer service, we have taken training to a whole new level! Our Certified Pit Crew program was developed to differentiate Grease Monkey® centers from the competition, help position us as our customers’ first choice for automotive services, and inspire our crews to achieve the highest performance standards. Modeled after a racing team pit crew, the Certified Pit Crew 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. Certified Pit Crews embrace and exemplify customer focus, professionalism, hustle, enthusiasm, precision, teamwork, and pride.
