"Welcome to Victory Lane Quick Oil Change here in Zebulon. As you can see we are next to McDonald’s, and we are happy to be here. 

We are a family business: my wife and my son work in the business and my daughter is an external consultant, so we are a family business and we really love the opportunity to be here in Zebulon. 

I’d like to say first, a lot of thankshave to thank my customers because without them we just don’t have a business. Then have to thank my employees. They are a special group of young men. I hope I have set them on the right path as they move on in life. I’m really proud of what they’ve been able to accomplish. I know that several have moved on to better jobs. 

I’d also like to thank the Chamber for everything that they have done to help keep this community, both businesses and customers, informed and directed through these uncertain times that we have. 

So plenty of thanks, and I’m also very optimistic. 

When the virus really began to take hold and everything began to shut down, we lost a little over two-thirds of our business. Even though we were able to stay open because we are considered an essential business, being open doesn’t mean anything without customers. And I want to thank those customers that came in that we have been able to service over the past month. 

I have a sense of optimism because I also see over the last week or so, our customer base is increasing, our sales are increasing, and I’ve just hired a new employee so I am optimistic that we will continue to grow. 

Next week, I plan to go back to our normal hours of operation which are from 8 AM – 6:30pm Monday through Friday, and 8 – 5pm on Saturday. We just hope everyone can see the importance of keeping their vehicle maintained and come by and see us again. Thanks again!"
