Colorado Jiffy Lube Group Acquires Mighty Auto Parts Franchise

The new company, doing business as Mighty of the Rockies, has become the exclusive distributor of Mighty automotive products throughout the Colorado Front Range.

Griffin Enterprises, which operates 55 Jiffy Lube locations in the Western states, is the latest Jiffy Lube group to acquire a Mighty Auto Parts franchise.

The new company, doing business as Mighty of the Rockies, has become the exclusive distributor of Mighty automotive products throughout the Colorado Front Range, according to Mighty Distributing System of America.

Mighty Distributing System is a Norcross, Georgia-based franchisor with a network of distributors that supply preventive maintenance products and inventory management programs to tire dealers, quick lubes, independent shops, car dealerships and fleets. Mighty’s growth plan includes strategic partnerships with prominent companies such as Griffin Enterprises that operate successful automotive service businesses and are looking for ways to improve profits, operational efficiency and diversification, according to Mighty Distributing.

Griffin Enterprises, owned by Dave and Joye Griffin, operate 55 Jiffy Lube locations in Colorado, Nevada and Utah. In addition, the Griffins operate Golden Glow, an auto body shop, and Cherry, a web-based vehicle-inspection app developer.

“We are well-acquainted with many of the other eight Jiffy Lube-affiliated Mighty franchises and have been considering a similar collaboration with Mighty for a long time,” said Jeff Griffin, Griffin Enterprises vice president of purchasing. “After meeting with them earlier this year and learning more about their impressive growth and expansion, our entire team knew the timing for a partnership was right. We are all honored to be joining the Mighty family and excited to provide exceptional products and services to the greater Denver market.”

The new Mighty franchise allows Griffin Enterprises to centrally distribute Mighty’s preventive maintenance products to its Jiffy Lube stores and provides access to Mighty’s inventory management programs, support and training. In addition, the Mighty division allows Griffin Enterprises to add profits with B2B product sales to non-affiliated customers in an exclusive territory, according to Mighty Distributing.

“We are very proud to partner with Griffin Enterprises, the ninth prominent Jiffy Lube group to add a Mighty franchise,” said Ken Voelker, Mighty’s president and CEO. “The strategic business model we have employed with these Jiffy Lube groups has proven to be a great fit. The team at Griffin is enthusiastic and committed to success in the Denver market and we look forward to supporting them every step of the way.”

Mighty supports 101 franchised distributors in 44 U.S. states and five international markets, according to the company.
