Hoods Up Quick Lube has opened a new location in Carroll Township.
New owner Gary Koteles, a resident of the Mon Valley, has been in the Quick Lube business since the age of seventeen. He managed his first store at the age of twenty one and became a district manager at the age of thirty. Koteles had inquired in the past with the Bartolotta family about purchasing the former Duke of Oil, located in the parking lot at Fisher Heights (Giant Eagle) in Monongahela, Carroll Township. However – Camera Bartolotta instead asked Koteles to manage the store, which he has for the past thirteen years. Finally, on February 12, 2020 he was able to successfully purchase the Duke of Oil and officially changed its name to Hoods Up Quick Lube.
