A Ford Quick Lane sized for Texas, from Automotive News.
On a clear day, you can see Pep Boys, Jiffy Lube and Firestone service shops from Planet Ford-Lincoln in Spring, Texas.
With all that nearby competition, why are dealer Randall Reed and his partner, General Manager Shawn Burns, spending $7 million to build a huge Quick Lane oil-change shop?
When Planet Ford-Lincoln’s Quick Lane shop in the Houston suburb opens in December, it will be the largest Ford Motor Co. Quick Lane operation, with 28 lanes. That’s right: 28 lanes.
While oil change intervals may be getting longer, Reed and Burns firmly believe fast oil changes can be the key to retaining service customers.
