Why own an automotive franchise?

Do you love cars? Are you an executive that enjoys customer service and managing employees? There are several amazing options of franchises in the automotive category. From well-known branded stores that require the build out of a new building and a commitment to multiple locations; to mobile repair businesses that you can operate out of a home office. And everything in between. Home-based models are lower investment with fewer employees while retail-based operations are a much higher investment and require several employees.

Huge demand for automotive services

Tap into the huge demand for automotive services. Since people are keeping their cars longer, they need routine or emergency maintenance. Consider the possibilities when most families own two or more cars that need repairs, replacement parts and/or accessories. Since no one likes to be without their vehicle, especially when they travel to work everyday. Having a safe vehicle can mean the difference between having a job and not having a job.

The majority of automotive franchise models are executive models, meaning the owner runs the business, and owners do not complete the hands-on work.

Investments range from $30,000-$1,000,000.

It’s not for everyone

  • Some territories are sold out
  • If you don’t like working with vehicles, then this probably is not the business for you.
  • Build out can take a long time to find a location and build the building.
