Express Lube celebrates 25 years
Jeri and Leo Durand started Express Lube and Rental in New Richmond in 1987. Morey Leverty was their business partner. The couple had recently returned from living in Colorado.
“We were looking for a business to get into and the auto lube business was becoming more popular,” said Jeri. “Also, Leo used to be in construction and we had a lot of the equipment so we just started to rent it out. We thought we needed both businesses. This way we keep very busy year round.”
