LINCOLN, Neb. (Dec. 10, 2010) – Automotive franchise Express Oil Change and Service Center has received World-Class Franchise® certification from the Franchise Research Institute® and FranSurvey®.

The recognition comes after an independent survey conducted by the Franchise Research Institute of which 75.8 percent of Express Oil Change and Service Center automotive franchise owners participated. The survey was designed to determine the level of franchisee satisfaction within the Express Oil Change and Service Center franchise system.

“For the past seven years Express Oil Change and Service Center has turned to the Institute to conduct annual surveys of their franchisees to obtain honest feedback about their franchise system,” said Jeff Johnson, founder and CEO of Franchise Research Institute. “The company understands that using unbiased, confidential, third-party research is the best way to judge what is working well and what needs to be improved for its franchisees.”

The survey asked Express Oil Change and Service Center franchise owners to rate their franchisor through a series of questions in categories such as overall growth potential, quality, support and communication.

Among the most notable responses received from Express Oil Change and Service Center franchisees:

  • 96 percent of franchisees gave a positive rating to the overall quality of the Express Oil Change and Service Center franchise system
  • 96 percent of franchisees stated they would recommend the Express Oil Change and Service Center franchise to a prospective franchisee
  • 96 percent of franchisees agreed with the statement, “My franchisor and I are committed to a long positive, long term relationship”
  • 100 percent gave a positive grade to Express Oil Change and Service Center’s initial training

It takes a very strong franchise training and support program to obtain this high level of satisfaction,” said Johnson.

Donald Larose, Senior Vice President Of Franchise Development for Express Oil Change and Service Center, agrees with Johnson that the results are exceptional and reinforce that the decisions made at the corporate level are helping franchisees build strong businesses.
