Going to a physical store to buy things is a quickly aging business model for quite a lot of companies and continually yields to online shopping and services that will deliver right to a customer's home. Recently, online services for vehicles is beginning to bring gas stations to customers instead of the other way around.
Yoshi, headquartered in San Francisco, California, started their business in 2015. They are now in 20 markets across the country and, most recently, in the Raleigh/Durham market. "It's one of our best markets," said Yoshi CEO and co-founder Bryan Frist. "We're rushing to put more trucks on the road."
Wherever Frist's special equipped and decorated trucks are shipped, new field technician jobs are offered. Yoshi technicians go through a background check and must have a CDL driver's license as well as Haz-Mat training.
Raymond Colquitt of Raleigh wears the Yoshi clothes and drives the company truck. His job switch started five months ago.
"Before that, I was a regular CDL truck driver, driving big rigs and delivering products," said Colquitt, adding that the new job keeps him closer to home. "It's a perfect fit -- 9 to 5, great hours, great income."
Typically, field technicians like Colquitt locate members' vehicles through a phone app and service them based upon a schedule arranged by customers.
Many schedule tank top-offs and tire pressure checks at least once a week, while an oil change can be arranged every three months or so.
Some markets even offer a car wash and detailing. The more services you purchase, the more discounts you receive on gas costs.
