History of Take 5 Oil

Take 5 Oil Change began as Rapid Oil Change in the fall of 1984 when the industry was at the beginning of the evolutionary cycle and began as a quick oil change doing minor repairs and maintenance services.

We first opened in Metairie, Louisiana.

Thirty years ago, in the mid 1980s, the automobile world was quite different, but consumer trends continued to move toward niche services that could be provided quickly and conveniently. Recognizing that the average number of vehicles per household continued to increase, and that females would continue to enter the work force, the opportunity for growth was exciting. Over the years, Take 5 has nurtured a value-added, customer-friendly business model.

Childrens Hospital Miracle Network & Take 5 Team UpThe growth of our company has afforded us the opportunity to create a culture of personal development for men and women and provide a source of leadership and character through that growth.

The opportunity to serve the surrounding communities and promote good will through philanthropic endeavors nurtures our commitment to community, family and personal growth. It is our 200-plus employees who accept the challenge every day to exceed customer expectations.

That is what fuels Take 5 Oil Change - "Home of the 5 Minute Oil Change" - and guarantees our success in the future.



Take 5 Oil Change Mission Statement

To set service standards and achieve customer satisfaction standards that exceed every customer's expectation by maintaining the highest possible level of employee training and development.

Evolution of the Brand

In 1996, we designed the first "5 Minute Drive-Thru Oil Change" concept. This reflected a new direction in our business model, all centered on improving customer experience and the speed of our service. Eventually, we converted our Rapid Oil locations to the 5-Minute format. The conversion to Take 5 "Home of the 5 Minute Oil Change" is an advertising agency's dream come true - with emphasis and branding on changing your oil, not your schedule.
