Business wise, Dr. Freedman started out from a sideline business with a managing partner, and they opened by a quick lube or oil change, convenient oil change as it’s called now, in 1988. Just prior to opening the store, the person to be the managing partner moved away so, he ran this business for well over 25 years, although it was not on a day-to-day business. Dr. Freedman did all the book keeping and disbursements and payroll outside.

Eventually, Dr. Freedman and his wife started to fomally market the business when the manager and assistant manager decided that they didn’t want to be owners themselves. He then contacted Morgan & Westfield and got a a realistic evaluation of his franchise business. Dr. Freedman, within the last couple of years, sold his business.
