History of Avis Lube Fast Oil Change Centers
In 1975, the Kent family formed Kent Lubrication Centers to specialize in fast oil change services. This was a new concept, in the 1970s, providing 15 minute oil changes while you waited with no appointment needed. Kent Lube literally started the quick lube industry in the Permian Basin by opening the first fast oil change facility in West Texas at 101 West County Rd. in Odessa. It is still in business today! This location not only was the first in the Permian Basin area, but one of the first in the entire country. Today, Kent Lubrication Centers operates all our locations under the Avis Lube name. Our Avis Lubes are located in Odessa, Midland, Big Spring, San Angelo, Abilene, and Waco, Texas making Avis Lube the largest quick lube chain in West Texas. Giving birth to an industry makes us proud and with our local long history and number of convenient Avis Lube locations, we’re proud to boast we’ve serviced more vehicles than all our quick lube competitors combined. This could only be possible by having dedicated, talented, well trained team members committed to making our customers happy.
