THE PUBLIC ASKS: What’s being built beside Hursey’s BBQ in Mebane (and in front of the Compass Pointe Self Storage building)?
Nothing fancy, just the last franchise location of Strickland Brothers 10 Minute Oil Change, making the third Alamance County location.
The company has locations at 1005 South Main Street in Graham and 547 Huffman Mill Road in Burlington.
The new Mebane location faces NC 119, but its formal address is listed on plans as 427 Compass Drive.

The company’s self-described benefit is a 10-minute oil change with no appointment necessary and customers allowed to remain in their cars during the service.
The company, headquartered in Winston-Salem, says it is one of the fastest-growing franchises in the United States. It now operates about a dozen locations in North Carolina among approximately 100 nationwide (in 20 states) and says it has contracted over 242 franchise locations projected to open across the country by 2024.
