IRVING, Texas, Nov. 6, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Heartland Automotive Services, Inc., America's largest Jiffy Lube franchisee, today announced the launch of a year-round military discount program. In honor of the nation's servicemen and women, all 540 Jiffy Lube service centers owned and operated by Heartland Automotive Services will offer active duty and retired members of the military 25% off their total service ticket price. The discount will be available year-round starting on Veterans Day, November 11, 2015.
Heartland Automotive Services employs over 4,800 team members, and owns and operates 540 service center locations in 26 states across the country. The franchise has a longstanding commitment to supporting active and retired military in the communities where its service centers are located, including hiring retired members of the military.
"Military veterans have been an integral part of our employee base," said Heartland Automotive Services Chief Executive Officer Larry Magee. "Since 2013, Heartland has employed over 1,100 veterans in various roles within the organization, including service center technicians, in-store and above store leadership positions, and store support center functions such as marketing, human resources, IT and finance."
Magee added, "We recognize the skills, training and contributions of our team who are former military and take pride in the fact that our service centers are extending our very best discount to current and former military members. Heartland Jiffy Lube believes in honoring our service men and women's commitment to our nation every day. So, instead of offering a one-day special, Heartland decided to make every day Veterans Day at every location. Because our military are always ready to serve, we're always ready to show our gratitude."
