- Great Lakes Quick Lube Ltd. is a franchisee of Valvoline Instant Oil change with 32 locations. Great Lakes Quick Lube Ltd. has been owning and operating Valvoline Instant Oil Change locations since 2004.
Great Lakes Quick Lube Ltd. is headed by its Operating Partner Jim Wheat. Mr. Wheat has over 40 years experience in all levels of automotive retail and franchise management with a proven record of turning around troubled companies through brand development and implementing proven business practices. He started his career as part time “Stock Boy” in a Western Auto store and spent the next 18 years with the company holding numerous management positions. Wheat joined Pennzoil Company in 1990 as part of the management team recruited to head up the Jiffy Lube acquisition, initially supervising the Eastern franchise operations. Mr. Wheat worked with the management team and Franchisees to successfully resolve franchise conflicts.
He was promoted to Sr. VP in 1992, developed a company store division as part of the franchise conflicts resolution and ultimately to Exec. VP, assuming responsibility for all company and franchise operations. He was promoted again. This time he was promoted to President of JLI and Group VP of Pennzoil in 1995. He lead the company to record sales, earnings, store count growth and solid franchisee relations.
In 1998 Mr. Wheat was recruited by the Penske Corp as President of Penske Auto Centers (formally K-Mart Auto Centers), an acquisition troubled and unprofitable at the time. He retooled the business model and utilized his experience to improve sales and earnings annually until 2002 when the Kmart Corporation filed for bankruptcy, resulting in several hundred PAC locations being closed.
From 2002-2004 he utilized his experience in retail automotive service business to take on troubled entities in order to determine the viability of the entities for their current management and ownership groups ( including Big-O Tires). This ultimately led him to connect with a private equity group in 2004 to build, manage and run Great Lakes Quick Lube Ltd.
