You Can’t Fall In Love With an Acquisition
As soon as I bought Quick Change I was looking for the second location. It’s not that I was bored, I just love the game.
Quick Lubes are difficult because to build a new one is minimum a half a million dollars, and there are massive environment regulations that need to be met. This is why existing locations that are grandfathered in are at a premium.
I have been trying to buy this business for over a year now. The situation has been presented multiple times but it has never been a situation or offer that I believe makes much business sense.
Strategically for my long term plans this location is perfect, however I won’t sacrifice long term success for short term gains.
