For me, getting an oil change is about as exciting as buying toilet paper. You always need it when you don’t have time to get it, it’s money you don’t really want to spend, and it takes you away from about a million other things you’d rather be doing. But what if it didn’t have to be like that? Imagine getting excited to get your Kia serviced.
Yeah, I said, “excited”.
Before I go into why it’s exciting, let me tell you why I’ve one thousand percent dreaded getting my Kia serviced until now.
Firstly, my Kia needs to be serviced during regular business hours. This means I have to take time away from my own work to do something I already loathe. Secondly, it’s not cheap. An average oil change for me runs about $50-$70. Thirdly, It’s boring. I’d much rather be having a coffee, hanging out with my dogs or writing. All these things have been true my entire adult life until I pulled into the Carriage Kia of Woodstock.

When I first rolled into Carriage Kia of Woodstock to get my Sorento serviced I immediately noticed the intake bay. Its pristine white floors made me feel like I was driving into the showroom. A service specialist greeted me right away and gave me the important customer feels as I was ushered to the waiting area.
I was floored when I saw what they had in their beautifully designed lobby. Set up like a small cafe complete with snack bar, coffee station, fresh popcorn, tables, chairs and even high top counters with outlets for charging, this space was more like a place you go to on purpose.
I was happy to grab a coffee and a granola bar. I happened to have my laptop on me, so I jumped right in and started to get my work done!
“Is this real life?” I thought to myself as I enjoyed their cafe vibe. There I was totally feeling like I wasn’t missing out on anything by getting my stupid oil changed! But that’s not the only thing that impressed me.
