April 18, 2017 // Franchising.com // HORSHAM, Penn. - AAMCO Transmissions, Inc. (“AAMCO”), franchisor of the world’s largest branded chain of transmission specialists and an industry leader in total car care services, is exhibiting at the Multi-Unit Franchise Conference (Booth No. 239) April 23-26 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas.
“This conference is a premier event for franchisees, and the AAMCO franchise team looks forward to the opportunity to meet with these business owners, find out more about their growth plans and discuss how ownership with AAMCO can play a part in that,” said Brian O’Donnell, AAMCO’s senior vice president of franchise sales and support. “We currently have over 75 multi-unit franchise owners in the AAMCO system who are benefiting from our 50 years of business expertise and the growth of the total car care business nationwide.”
AAMCO experienced a strong year for franchise development in 2016, receiving 68 deposits for new centers and opening 21 AAMCO service centers. In December, the company also reported double-digit growth in total car care sales. The company seeks to partner with good business people who are passionate and committed to taking care of customers. A background in automotive repair is not necessary; AAMCO provides immediate training at AAMCO University, a state-of-the-art facility outside of Atlanta, as well as ongoing training and support from a dedicated franchise team, which has helped multi-unit franchise owners like Lee Konsker, who owns multiple centers in Florida, succeed.
“From Day One, AAMCO’s franchise development team and the rest of the corporate staff have provided the instruction and the framework we need to be successful,” said Konsker. “That support, combined with the dual revenue streams of transmission repair and total car care, has allowed us to grow and expand our business.”
For more than 50 years, AAMCO’s network of locally owned and independently operated automotive service centers has employed the latest technology. 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, the company has evolved into a total car care brand that provides a variety of services including brake repair, tune-ups, shocks and struts, routine maintenance and more. AAMCO was named to Entrepreneur’s 2017 Franchise 500 ranking top of its category for the third consecutive year. Based on network size, growth rate and financial strength, last year, the brand also earned a spot on Entrepreneur’s “Best of the Best” list. Additionally, AAMCO has been consecutively ranked on Franchise Times’ Top 200+ for the last two years.
With nearly 650 centers across North America, AAMCO is actively seeking single- and multi-unit franchisee 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 $65,000 per unit. Depending on the real estate site selected, franchisees can expect the total investment to be approximately $227,400 - $333,000 with a $39,500 initial franchise fee. AAMCO offers financing support for qualified candidates. Reduced franchise fees are also available for honorably discharged veterans.
