Our History and Vision


Total sales expected for the automotive aftermarket industry by 2024. That’s up from $325 billion in 2021.

The auto repair industry is massive, steadily growing, and resistant to downturns.

One reason SpeeDee Oil Change & Auto Service® is a great business opportunity is because more than 99% of the vehicles on U.S. roads need regular oil changes. And while electric vehicles are very slowly gaining market share, it will be decades before they make up the majority of cars on the road.

What SpeeDee Owners say

Some of our owners are gearheads. Some had no automotive background at all before becoming a SpeeDee Oil Change & Auto Service® center owner. See what they say about the brand.
  • This [SpeeDee] will give me an opportunity to live my life the way I want. I was managing properties for an oil company in the Gulf of Mexico. I have had people call me to ask, ”Do you miss it?” I don't miss it. I don’t miss any of that. I love getting up, going to my shop, opening it up. And I like talking to people.

    Mark Freeman

    A former manager in the oil industry who owns a SpeeDee Oil Change location in Hammond, Louisiana, and runs it with part-time help from his wife, Lorena.
  • The marketing has probably been the best experience I've ever had. The SpeeDee marketing team is and always has been hands-down in control and has always done a great job on every level. I attribute a lot of the success to marketing efforts. They really care about the franchisees' commitments to their investments and ongoing franchise agreements.

    Matthew Kirby

    An owner of multiple businesses, including three SpeeDee Oil Change centers in Texas, which he and his wife ran as the primary operators for 15 years. Now each of their three children manages a center. Matthew retains the role of chief operator, and the family plans to open two more locations in 2022.
  • The SpeeDee leadership team is very professional. In old jobs, I’ve always had leadership that was very brash and ruled with an iron fist and used fear as a tool to get you to do what they wanted you to do. I didn’t get that feeling at all with SpeeDee. They’ve always been very helpful and answered all of my questions. Sometimes things go wrong and customers have issues, and when that happens, I can reach out to one of my fellow franchisees or to a member of the SpeeDee leadership team. There is always someone I can text or call who can help me.

    Garland Moore

    An Army National Guard veteran who owns two SpeeDee Oil Change franchises in North Carolina.
  • SpeeDee’s business model is really second to none. It’s as honest as it gets — it really just goes back to that same family-oriented atmosphere. SpeeDee doesn’t take advantage of people and try to milk them for every penny. Customers bring their cars to our shops and trust us to do the best work we can for a fair price.

    Teresa Wanderstadt

    A SpeeDee Oil Change owner in California. Teresa started at SpeeDee as a cashier in 1995. When the former franchisee – who was also Teresa’s manager – retired in 1996, Teresa and her husband Randy bought the single-unit business, with the encouragement of her former manager.
