Oil Can Henry’s is a Portland-based company with plans to open 14 stores in the Sacramento region during the next five years. The chain promotes the fact that car owners stay in their vehicles while the lube work is done, with a video monitor showing what’s happening. A spokesman says women in particular feel more secure staying in their vehicles, where they won’t be pressured into buying something extra. Most of Oil Can Henry’s stores are owned by franchisees. That’s the case with the first two locations here, in Elk Grove and Folsom, which should open near year’s end.
