HOUSTON (Nov. 5, 2019) – Jiffy Lube, a leading automotive maintenance provider, is proud to now provide fast, convenient quality service to residents of Tupelo, Mississippi and the surrounding area, with the acquisition of service centers previously operated as Havoline Xpress Lube & Service Centers.  As local business owner Randy Groover readies for retirement, he has decided to sell his locations to Jiffy Lube franchisee Premium Velocity Auto LLC.

Jiffy Lube offers a wide range of automotive services including brakes, tires and engine diagnostics as well as the Jiffy Lube Signature Service® Oil Change.  The new Jiffy Lube service centers are located at:

  • 1630 N Gloster Street – Tupelo, MS
  • 475 E Main Street – Tupelo, MS
  • 2235 Main Street – Tupelo, MS
  • 1081 Cliff Gookin Blvd – Tupelo, MS
  • 1112 N. 2nd Street – Booneville, MS
  • 1804 Highway 72 East – Corinth, MS
  • 710 East Avalon Avenue – Muscle Shoals, AL
  • 2548 Florence Blvd. – Florence, AL

“For nearly 25 years, I’ve dedicated myself to serving the residents of Mississippi and have loved every minute of it,” said Randy Groover, President of Pro Oil Shop, which owned and operated the Havoline Xpress Lube & Service Centers. “As I begin my next journey, which involves spending more quality time with my family and enjoying retirement, I wanted to ensure that my hard work would continue to serve the community.”

Groover added, “I attribute the success of the business to my employees, many of whom have been with me for well over a decade. In evaluating potential buyers, a key factor was identifying one which would provide a stable, rewarding work environment for the employees who have given so much to me and the business.”

“We are looking forward to serving drivers in Tupelo and the surrounding communities,” said Kevin Lyng, President of Premium Velocity Auto LLC. “And, we are so pleased that Randy’s service center team members will continue their employment with Jiffy Lube.  So, customers will be greeted and serviced by the same employees who have cared for their vehicles over the years.”   

Lyng added, “We know drivers rely on their vehicle, which is why we are dedicated to helping keep their vehicles on the road.”
