Heartland Buys TX Mobil 1 Lube Express Operation

Another big acquisition for Heartland Auto Services dba Jiffy Lube, the nation’s largest Jiffy Lube franchisee. This time, the company purchased Washburn Industries, operator of a number of Mobil 1 Lube Express centers in central Texas. This marks the sixth major acquisition in the first four months of this year for Heartland, which is on a buying spree the likes of which might not have ever been seen before in this business. The company currently operates more than 450 stores coast to coast. Anyone want to bet they won’t reach 500 before the year’s end?
