OMAHA, Neb. Heartland Automotive Services, Inc., the largest franchisee of Jiffy Lube Stores in the country, has announced a plan to relocate its corporate office to Dallas from Omaha, Neb. Heartland Automotive operates nearly 400 locations within 17 markets across the country. Efficient accessibility to all markets was a key factor in the decision to relocate the corporate office to the Dallas area with the DFW airport located minutes from the office complex. The Dallas area is also well suited to meet the needs of the future company expansion plans, Heartland Automotive says.
All corporate office staff has been invited to remain with the company and to relocate to the new office.
"We recognize the tremendous knowledge and experience in our current group of corporate office personnel, and we want them to relocate with us," said CEO Brett Ponton.
The transition to Dallas is expected to begin late this summer or early fall, 2010 and to be completed well before the end of the year. Heartland Automotive Services still has strong ties to Omaha as the Central Division Office will remain headquartered in Omaha. The company operates 18 stores in the Omaha area, with additional plans to expand in the market.
