Take 5 Oil Change opens first California location

September 19, 2022

Take 5 Oil Change opened its first California location on Friday, Sept. 2. This franchised Bay Area site in Richmond, California continues Take 5 Oil Change’s expansion West, following recent growth in Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah.

“We’re exceptionally proud of the Take 5 Oil Change brand and how consumers have responded to the service offering and customer experience,” said Danny Rivera, EVP and Group President of Maintenance at Driven Brands. “Our first location in California marks an important milestone for the company, and we look forward to continuing our growth in California and the West Coast.”

The new location is owned and managed by Automotive Services Holdings, LLC (ASH), which has plans to open more Take 5 Oil Change stores in the region. ASH is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and is led by a team with extensive experience in property development, business management, and hospitality.

Driven Brands acquired Take 5 Oil Change in 2016 and has built the brand from less than 70 locations to more than 750. The company first franchised the Take 5 model in 2017 and plans to open its 200th franchised location later this year.

“Take 5 is a great model for franchising given its unit-level economics and simple operating model,” said Rivera. “Our franchisees are sophisticated, multi-unit operators who understand the retail franchising business.”

He noted that Take 5’s “stay in your car 10-minute oil change” service resonates with customers who are looking for stellar service and convenience.
