From the press release:

HOUSTON, June 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Jiffy Lube®, the company that pioneered the quick lube industry, announced today that is has signed its youngest franchisee to date, Miles Blauvelt, in Baltimore, Maryland.  At the age of 23, Blauvelt is no stranger to Jiffy Lube, advancing through management and now, transitioning into his new role as owner of MAB Lube, LLC, a Jiffy Lube franchise.  He will operate the Jiffy Lube service center located at 1316 Merritt Blvd, Baltimore, Maryland – and previously owned by his father. 

Although he may be the youngest Jiffy Lube franchise owner, Blauvelt’s Jiffy Lube roots began seven years ago when he started working for his father’s Jiffy Lube franchise, Delta Lube, and learning the business from the ground up.  Throughout high school summer vacations and while earning his Business Degree at the University of Maryland, College Park, Blauvelt honed his skills and passion for business, preparing him for a career as a Jiffy Lube franchisee.

“We are excited to welcome Miles Blauvelt into our growing system of service centers,” said Barry Wood, director, market optimization.  “Miles exemplifies the passion and professionalism that Jiffy Lube seeks in all of its franchisees and we are confident that he will be extremely successful.”

With a network of nearly 2,000 independently owned franchises in North America, Jiffy Lube has a long history within the automotive service industry.  Franchisees have spent an average of 13 years in the Jiffy Lube system.

“I am thrilled to carry on the family tradition by taking over the business that my father worked so hard to build,” said Miles Blauvelt, Jiffy Lube franchisee.  “From customer service to logistical operations, Jiffy Lube has an established reputation in the industry that is supported by a strong franchise program.  I hope we continue to keep Jiffy Lube in our family for generations to come.”
