“Our franchisees work so hard year-round to provide quick, quality service to customers, and all contribute to the overall success and growth we have experienced,” said Ron Stilwell, president of FullSpeed Automotive. “Not only do they strive for their own success, but also to make sure our brands succeed. We are delighted to be able to award our franchisees, and hope this year’s conference gave the entire system the confidence and boost they need to keep growing and make 2023 an even better year.”

Notably, this year, Grease Monkey is celebrating its 45th anniversary, says FullSpeed Automotive. “It is an exciting time – we see a lot of opportunities to grow this brand even further, and with a 45-year history to lean on as a launch pad, the sky’s the limit for what’s to come,” added Stilwell. “Everything we do is focused on making our customers happy and ensuring the success of our franchisees. Now, we have refined store models and innovative systems to support our efforts to continually improve as we move into the next 45 years.”
