Take 5 Oil Change now open on Michigan Road


By Sam Montgomery

A family business has expanded to west Carmel.

Take 5 Indiana, owned and operated by cousins Andy Morrison of Zionsville and Elliot Smith of Noblesville, have opened a new location at 98th Street and Michigan Road.

Elkhart natives, the cousins left their corporate jobs in 2018 to sign a multi-unit commitment with Take 5 Oil Change with exclusive rights to develop the brand in central Indiana.

“We grew up in a family business environment,” Morrison said. “Our dads are business partners in a company that our grandpa started. We grew up 3 miles apart from each other, so we were always close and always knew we wanted to do something together at some point.

“We learned more about Take 5 and really liked the simplicity of the business model.”

Morrison said Take 5 brought a different angle to the oil-change business.

“It’s a 10- to 12-minute oil change, and guests remain in their vehicle for the duration of the oil change,” Morrison said. “We really emphasize customer service at our establishments.”

Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the opening of the new location proceeded as previously planned.

“In terms of the opening timeline, COVID-19 did not have much of an impact because construction was able to stay, for the most part, on schedule,” Morrison said.
