I understand the stress, but you can't change things and I am confident things will work out.
The quickies rely on extra sales that you often don't need. We spent several years and still are a third party shop that deals with this type of thing.
IF this turns out that they are responsible, they will have to make good. First thing that needs to be done is have a professional look at it. I recommend you call the shop who you are familiar with and talk to him as he is familiar with your area and maybe has better insight as to how the quickie shop works. OR find the closest shop with a recommendation from a neighbor/friend etc that car can be towed to. You need a diagnosis. A third shop is best in this case.
IT needs to be determined if there is any leak or other cause for no oil. Once that is established, the shop needs to contact the quickie shop manager. At that point they discuss which way they want to go.
If there is no leak, other than from the drain plug or filter then logically oil will be added and the car started and observed. I would fully expect that if there is fault on the quickie shop, then all expenses should be paid. IF it seems to operate normal than the oil pressure should be checked to be sure it is holding good pressure. If it is then you need to discuss with them the what if scenario. IF you don't like the what if scenario, then you get a lawyer involved.
Quickie oil changes run into this more often than you can imagine because of the quality of "technician" they use.
