Meet Our Founder

Founder, Adam Smith, was the very first owner & operator of Smith’s Lube and Repair. Born & raised in Lafayette, Louisiana, Adam always found himself taking things apart and then putting them back together. A graduate of Acadiana High School, Adam simultaneously attended the Career Center to become an automobile technician & passed as the first place ASE Certified Technician in his class. He then enrolled at Louisiana Technical College where he mastered in diesel technology.

While working in the crane industry, Adam began exploring the idea of purchasing a franchise. Unable to find the perfect franchise for himself, he set out to open Smith’s Lube and Repair in Lafayette, Louisiana. Within just the first 6 years, Adam was able to obtain contracts with nationally known clients like U-Haul, Enterprise, and FedEx. In 2022, he quickly realized that the demand for on-site and mobile lube and repair services had exceeded his expectations and he began the journey to launch his franchise opportunity. Adam’s goal is that all of his nationwide clients will be covered by a local provider of Smith’s Lube and Repair services. As a new franchise owner, you can expect Adam to be there for you and guide you to success every step of the way.
