Wynnchurch Capital recently acquired Heartland Automotive Services, Inc., the largest operator of Jiffy Lube service centers with about 523 locations. Heartland will be renamed Team Car Care, LLC. The deal was completed in partnership with Mid-Atlantic Lubes, Inc., an existing Jiffy Lube franchisee.
“Heartland is a tremendous addition to our portfolio of service businesses,” said John Hatherly, co-managing partner at Wynnchurch Capital. “We feel very fortunate to be partnering with Jiffy Lube International, Inc. We are also excited to partner with Mid-Atlantic Lubes, Inc. and its 10-year history of outstanding customer service delivery that will continue on with each of Heartland’s guests.”
