Our 2008 Tops in the Industry study is now available in PDF format free to paid subscribers (click here if you’re a paid subscriber to NOLN; click here to sign up for a paid subscription). In addition to listing the top fast lube chains that we listed in our article about the Tops study (read more here), the complete Tops study includes information about the growing oil change-plus market, along with listings U.S.-owned foreign fast oil change chains. Finally, the study also lists the overall fast lube population, estimated annual sales of the fast lube industry, information on Canadian and truck lube chains and other data. If you’d like to order an electronic copy of the survey, contact Misty Dolan.
If you’re not a paid subscriber, you might think about it. In addition to gaining access to full versions of all our surveys (some of which we sell for $65 or more) past and present, you’ll also get our 2008 Value Book, a listing of special offers by industry vendors exclusively to our paid subscribers. It’s got hundreds of dollars of savings inside, well worth the $39 cost of a subscription. Contact Mai Nguyen for more information.
