October 20, 2016 // Franchising.com // HORSHAM, Pa. - AAMCO Transmissions, Inc. (“AAMCO”), franchisor of the world’s largest branded chain of transmission specialists and an industry leader in total car care services, today announced one of its Louisville, Kentucky service centers located at 126 Breckenridge Lane has a new owner. The Louisville service center features five bays and specializes in transmission repair and total car care services.
The new owner, John Summers, also owns another AAMCO franchise in Louisville located at 11696 Dixie Highway. After working as a service center manager at the location for four years, he made the jump from employee to franchisee in 2004. Last year, Summers was named AAMCO’s Grand Champion of the 2015 President’s Club, an annual competition that measures shops with 15 key performance indicators (KPIs) within four major categories, including business growth, training and education, customer satisfaction and brand standards. The entrepreneur received this recognition after turning his Dixie Highway, three-bay AAMCO service center into a 10-bay facility after nearly a decade of business growth. In addition to running his center, the franchise owner actively supports his community through donations and sponsorships that go toward college scholarships for local high school seniors.
“I’ve enjoyed servicing the people of south Louisville for well over a decade,” said Summers. “I wanted to bring the same excellent customer service and positive experiences that the people of south Louisville have experienced to the community of east Louisville. I believe that AAMCO has a lot to offer the local community, and I’m excited to show them what the brand is all about.”
The AAMCO of Louisville located on 126 Breckenridge Lane is open from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and on Saturday by appointment. For more information, visit www.aamcotransmissionrepairlouisvilleeast.com or call 502-933-4747.
