August Anniversaries: Growing Older Together in Oakley

Oil_Can_Henrys_Oakley_California_BlogYou could say Oil Can Henry’s and the community of Oakley, California, have grown up together.\n\nOakley, centrally located 55 miles east of San Francisco and 55 miles south of Sacramento, was incorporated just 15 years ago, on July 1, 1999.\n\nEight days later, John N. Shepanek opened his Oil Can Henry’s service center across Highway 4 in Antioch.\n\nThe Antioch center proved to be so popular with residents of Oakley and Brentwood (which borders Oakley on the south) that John opened a new center on Main Street in Oakley four years later, on August 8, 2004.\n\nToday, Oakley is a thriving, growing community of more than 37,500. And Oil Can Henry’s is providing quick, convenient and thorough oil changes and other preventive maintenance services to thousands upon thousands of happy drivers.\n\nOur congratulations to Oakley on its first 15 years, and to John and his team of friendly, trained technicians on 11 years of service in Oakley.\n\nA tip of our Gatsby caps to the 10 other Oil Can Henry’s service centers celebrating August anniversaries:\n

From Our Customers: I Love This Place

Oil Can Henry’s – 1646 Pace Street in Longmont, Colorado
\n\nI love this place. Since moving to Longmont this is the only place I’ve gone for maintenance. The staff is always friendly and attentive. Everything is explained and filters and fluid are shown to me. I get options and feel free to ask for explanations before I pick.\n\nTwo items were not in stock, a cabin filter and a serpentine belt, but were ordered and arrived while the rest of the maintenance was being completed.\n\nI was offered a paper (had my Ipad) and water twice, which I accepted gratefully.\n\nI was there about an hour (had a lot of work done) and I never felt like the work was being hurried to get me out and another customer in. The staff really seemed to enjoy working together, which makes the whole atmosphere very comfortable. Brandon, my upper tech, was somewhat new and a real sweetheart. I heard one of the other techs explaining a procedure at one point to him – he was eager to learn and appreciative of the help and the other tech didn’t act like he had something else he’d rather being doing (very important to a customer).\n\nOverall, as always, a really enjoyable experience.\n\n~ Mary H.\nLongmont, CO

March Anniversaries: Not-So-Secret in Gresham

Oil Can Henry's - Gresham, OregonGresham leaders may have a point when they say their city is “Oregon’s Best Kept Secret”. After all, most people don’t know Gresham has 1,635 fire hydrants; 116.74 miles of bike lanes; and 7,500 street lights. And, the majority of Americans are likely unaware that the city (the fourth largest in Oregon) was named after the American Civil War general, and Postmaster General, Walter Quinton Gresham\n\nThat said, there’s one thing that’s definitely not a secret in Gresham: the popularity of the local Oil Can Henry’s service center, which is owned and operated by Charlie Schwab.\n\nOne of Oil Can Henry’s first employees, Charlie has more than 30 years of vehicle maintenance and customer service experience under his belt. He understands the importance of providing quick, convenient and thorough service that people can trust, and has developed a fantastic team of friendly, hard-working technicians that know their way around a vehicle. Together, the Gresham crew has earned the loyalty of drivers throughout the Gresham area.\n\nCongratulations to Charlie and his Gresham team on 13 years of superior service. And kudos to the five other Oil Can Henry’s service centers also celebrating March anniversaries:\n
