Husband-And-Wife Team Become AAMCO's Largest Franchisees To Date

Existing Franchise Owners Purchase Seven Additional Service Centers in Oklahoma City

June 09, 2015 // // HORSHAM, Pa. - AAMCO, the world's largest chain of transmission specialists and leader in total car care, announced today Thomas and Ronda Scott have become the largest franchise owners in the system following the purchase of seven centers in Oklahoma City. In addition to these seven units, the Scotts own two AAMCO locations in Tulsa, Okla., which they purchased less than two years ago.

After years of uprooting their family for Thomas' previous jobs, the Scotts were seeking a sustainable business opportunity so they could settle down and focus on family. In November 2013, after thorough research, the entrepreneurs purchased an existing AAMCO service center in Tulsa, followed by the acquisition of a second location in the market less than six months later. The Scotts quickly transformed the two units into valued businesses and top performers in the region. Last year, they were presented with the opportunity to purchase seven additional units in Oklahoma City, which they eagerly accepted – earning them the title of largest franchisees in the system.

"The past two years have been an exciting whirlwind for Ronda and me" said Thomas Scott, AAMCO franchisee. "We're thrilled to have such an incredible platform that allows us the opportunity to impact the lives of people in the community. The ongoing support we receive from AAMCO's executive team is unparalleled, and we're constantly motivated by their passion and commitment to their franchisees. We look forward to continuing to serve new and existing customers in Tulsa and Oklahoma City for many years to come."

Prior to joining AAMCO, Thomas spent more than three decades in plastic manufacturing working in the injection-molding field, while Ronda worked for 15 years as a dental hygienist. Today, the Scotts are closely involved in the day-to-day operations of their nine units.

"Thomas and Ronda have proven to be tremendous franchise owners to AAMCO and continue to impress us with their commitment to providing superior customer service each and every day," said Brian O'Donnell, senior vice president of sales for AAMCO. "As the largest franchisees in our system, the Scotts are exemplary leaders, and we look forward to their continued success."

For over 50 years, AAMCO's locally owned and independent service centers employ the latest technology and its expert technicians diagnose a repair, fix it right the first time and back it with a nationwide warranty. Known as the world's leading transmission expert, AAMCO has evolved into a total car care brand providing a variety of services, including brake repairs, tune-ups, shocks and struts, routine maintenance and more, and was recently named to Entrepreneur's 2015 Franchise 500®. Ranking at the top of the transmission repair category based on system size, growth rate and financial strength also earned the brand a spot on Entrepreneur's "Best of the Best" list.

With nearly 700 centers across North America, AAMCO is actively seeking single- and multi-unit operators who are passionate about the brand and committed to providing the highest quality service. Interested candidates should have a minimum net worth of $250,000 and liquid assets of at least $80,000 per unit. Depending on the real estate site selected, franchisees can expect the total investment to be approximately $240,325 - $346,700 with a $39,500 initial franchise fee. Reduced franchise fees are available for honorably discharged veterans.
