Jiffy Lube > Wiki


With more than 2,000 service centers in North America, Jiffy Lube® is the largest system of franchised and company-operated service centers in the fast lube industry, servicing approximately 24 million customers each year. Headquartered in Houston, Jiffy Lube® International is a wholly owned, indirect subsidiary of Shell Oil Company.

Jiffy Lube® pioneered the fast oil change industry in 1979 by establishing the first drive-through service bay, providing customers with fast and professional maintenance service for their vehicles. Jiffy Lube® was created to fill a gap left by the departure of full service gas stations and the emergence of the self-serve model. It also accommodated the shift from the do-it-yourself oil change market (DIY) to the installed motor oil market, or do-it-for-me (DIFM). Over the next two decades, more than half the growth in the installed market went to fast lubes.

In addition to its pioneering business model, Jiffy Lube® is also responsible for some of the major advances in automotive preventive maintenance service.

Jiffy Lube® introduced the now-ubiquitous window cling reminder sticker to help drivers keep track of their oil change intervals.

Jiffy Lube® also uses state-of-the-art computing technology to educate customers about vehicle maintenance services, share customers' maintenance histories across its network, and provide services that satisfy vehicle manufacturers' warranty requirements. This gives drivers the freedom to visit any Jiffy Lube® service center with the peace of mind that their records can travel with them.

Jiffy Lube® is also widely recognized for its environmentally responsible track record and community service commitments. As a system, Jiffy Lube® collects more used oil than any company in North America. This oil is re-refined and used for industrial applications, such as concrete manufacturing, electricity generation and heating asphalt to pave roads.

Jiffy Lube® supports a wide range of social issues and non-profit organizations including the Jimmy Fund at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, the American Cancer Society, Make-A-Wish® Foundation, the Muscular Dystrophy Association® and many local children's hospitals.

Going forward, the Jiffy Lube® brand will continue to grow domestically and internationally to help consumers everywhere quickly, conveniently and confidently maintain their vehicles. In 2004, Jiffy Lube® International announced its expansion into China through a partnership with Shanghai Automotive Industry Sales Corporation and currently have stores serving customers in Shanghai. Additional overseas expansions are also in development.

For more than 25 years, Jiffy Lube® has been an integral part of the North American driving experience. With vehicles playing an ever-more important part of our daily lives, Jiffy Lube® is committed to support drivers with fast, quality preventive maintenance service to keep their vehicles running smoother for longer.

Jiffy Lube really depends on where you go and how talk to the folks that work there.       If you show any sign of not knowing about your car, you're in for it. If you know exactly what you're there for, they'll leave you alone.       There have been so many horror stories of people who drive up for an oil change and then get sucked into buying all sorts of things that their car doesn't even need, or not at that time. People spend …

Jiffy Lube 2
I find it awfully hard to believe but Jiffy Lube has been around for more than 30 years.  Jiffy Lube practically invented the quick oil change business.  This was an innovation that just about everyone welcomed and quickly embraced.  Changing your own oil was dirty, time consuming and often dangerous.  Several times a year a story would appear in the local newspaper about someone who was killed or seriously injured while changing their oil in the garage or out in the …
