Roughrider Quick Lube holds grand opening ribbon cutting
The Shelby County Chamber of Commerce hosted a ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony for Roughrider Quick Lube on Thursday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m.
Conveniently located at 905 Hurst St., the new enterprise is owned and operated by Nathan Phelps and wife Amber.
Shelby County Chamber of Commerce Ambassador Chairwoman Andrea Johnston Foster welcomed the couple to the Center business community with their newest enterprise.
“We're just so proud of you and what you're doing,” Foster said as fellow chamber ambassadors and chamber members gathered around.
“We're excited to open Roughrider Quick Lube,” Nathan Phelps said. As part of the grand opening event and ribbon cutting, lunch was served and attendees were provide giveaways and goodie bags.
Phelps said he is a 1997 Center High School graduate who is proud to continue the Roughrider tradition with the name of the business and purple and gold colors.
“We just want to continue the tradition and we'd like to know everyone can come and get their oil changed, get their tire pressure checked and get their windshield wipers checked,” he said. We can do a courtesy inspection of your vehicle as well as state inspections.”
Roughrider Quick Lube opened on Aug. 7. Hours are 8 a.m. To 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m.-6 p.m. Saturdays.
“If you're out running your errands on Saturday, swing by and we'll fix you up,” Phelps said. Normally quality service can be completed within 15 minutes to get guests back on the road.
His four person staff has more than 60 years of experience in the business and operate out of two bays to complete whatever type of service customers need done.
“We have your pit man and another three people to service your vehicle,” Phelps said.
While Nathan and Amber are new to the vehicle lube business they are not new to the local business scene. They have operated Bob's Pawn and Gun and about a year ago moved the 13-year-old business to the building next to Roughrider Quick Lube.
