PROVO, Utah — Jiffy Lube franchisee SRE Group recently opened its 29th location, a four-bay Jiffy Lube Multicare shop, in Provo, and it plans to open two more stores in Nevada before year-end.
The Provo opening is SRE's sixth new store in the past two and a half years, according to Jiffy Lube International, the brand's franchisor.
In addition, SRE Group recently broke ground on a new store in Southern Highlands, Nev., and struck a deal to buy a store in Henderson, Nev.
Both Nevada locations are scheduled to open as Jiffy Lube Multicare facilities, which include expanded services such as brakes, tires and engine diagnostics as well as the brand's Jiffy Lube Signature Service Oil Change.
SRE Group leadership, including Kelly Kent, Kelly Thompson and Matt Johnson, is motivated to beat the competition to market to gain the long-term business potential and return on investment that Jiffy Lube brings to its business owners, the franchisor said.
"There is long-term business potential with the Jiffy Lube brand," SRE Group co-CEO Kelly Kent said, adding Jiffy Lube International "provides incentives and resources to help us accelerate our growth. The ability to increase our return is key in our growth decisions."
SRE's stores are located in Montana, Nevada and Utah.
Jiffy Lube International is a wholly owned, indirect subsidiary of Shell Oil Co. It has more than 2,000 franchised service centers in North America, serving roughly 20 million customers each year.
