PepBoys is a chain of autopart and tire stores with over 7000 stores. The chain was started with a $800 investment by Emanuel "Manny" Rosenfeld, Maurice "Moe" Strauss, Graham "Jack" Jackson and Moe Radavitz in 1921 as Pep Auto Supply in Philadelphia. The company was named "Pep" simply because they liked the short name used on "Pep Grinding Oil."
The company's logo features three Pep boys (Manny, Moe and Jack) with the slogan "PepBoys Does Everything for Less."
