It all started in the 1970s for Jiffy Lube. Ed Washburn set up the first Jiffy Lube in Utah. From there is has grown into one of the largest lube companies in North America.
Throughout the 1980s Jiffy Lube went from only a handful of outlets to the one thousand mark.
In the early part of the 1990s Jiffy Lube was acquired by Pennzoil. Pennzoil later went into partnership with Quaker State.
Shell took over the running of Jiffy Lube in 2002. But it's not all been easy for them!
In 2003 it was discovered that Jiffy Lube routinely charged customers for services that they didn't use.
In 2009 it was also discovered that Jiffy Lube were carrying out jobs that were harmful to cars according to the manufacturers recommendations.
Shell have managed to cast aside Jiffy Lube's problems and continued to change their reputation and open even more stores. They now have over 2,000 locations in the US.
