Take 5 Oil Change Breaks Ground for New Facility

in Business

Take 5 Oil Change has broken ground at 3122 N. 16th Street in Orange with a proposed estimated capital investment of $2,000,000 at the project site.

Take 5 was founded in 1984 as Rapid Oil Change. It offered quick oil changes, minor repairs, and other maintenance services. Since then, it has expanded, faced disaster, and become part of the community.

What started in Louisiana, just outside New Orleans, spread to eight states and across the southeastern United States from Virginia to Texas, with 60 locations, with five more shops opening in the coming months.  To date, the company has opted to limit franchising the brand, but it continues to consider future options to do so.

In 1996, Take 5 revolutionized its business model by creating the first stay-in-your-car oil change. The shops featured shallow pits, drive-through oil changes, synchronized oil changes, and fast, friendly service.

In 2020, Take 5 Car Wash launched, delivering a fast, friendly, and convenient car wash experience with a customer- and people-first culture.

Take 5 is all about fast, friendly, and simplified oil changes. In just a few minutes, they change your engine oil and filter. Vital under-hood fluids are also checked and replenished to the recommended level.

No firm opening date was announced.
