Entrepreneur magazine’s list confirms SpeeDee’s standing as a top business opportunity

SpeeDee Oil Change & Auto Service® is a trusted franchise, according to Entrepreneur magazine’s 2024 Entrepreneur Verified list.

“By declaring you Entrepreneur Verified, we are authenticating your brand’s transparency and diligence. Entrepreneur Verified is a signal to prospective franchisees and partners that you are a trusted brand,” says a statement from the magazine.

“Securing a spot in Entrepreneur’s lineup underscores our ongoing dedication to excellence, our innovative spirit, and the steadfast backing we offer to our franchise partners,” says Ron Stilwell, President of FullSpeed Automotive.

“It serves as a validation of our team’s relentless commitment and fuels our determination to keep redefining the benchmarks in this sector.”

Unwavering support

SpeeDee supports our owners from the beginning. Before you open a SpeeDee store, we’ll help you find a good location, offer flexible construction and design plans, and assist with installing and testing equipment, waste disposal, inventory, and more.

We’ll be there to help prepare for the opening of your store and to celebrate at your Grand Opening. Our support continues once your SpeeDee business is running.

Your franchise support director will visit to see how things are going, and you can attend a manager training school. We also provide training resources to help you level up your employees in their careers.

“Support from SpeeDee has been top shelf all the way. Our franchise support director has spent time in the shop to observe and make recommendations. He is very responsive in terms of questions, answers, and support,” says SpeeDee owner Lynn Malone.

Why our business is strong

The quick lube business is a massive industry with reliable demand. There are approximately 291 million vehicles on the road in the U.S., and those vehicles need oil changes. That demand is steady and resists economic downturns. In fact, SpeeDee stores stayed open during COVID because they’re considered essential businesses. 

We have a proven business model that has powered growth for decades, and our leadership and development teams are experienced at guiding franchisees through the process. Our business coaches serve as an ongoing resource to help you boost revenue and ROI.

SpeeDee owner Matthew Kirby says, “Marketing has probably been the best experience I’ve ever had. I can attribute a lot of our success to the marketing efforts.”
