Common Myths about Opening an Auto Repair Franchise

Whether you’re looking to change up your path or have wanted to be a businessman from the start, opening an auto repair franchise location can be a great start to a rewarding career. At Meineke, we strive to provide all of the necessary resources to successfully run your own auto repair franchise location in your area. Though you may have some concerns about whether you’re qualified for the task, you’ll find that becoming part of a franchise in the auto industry doesn’t mean you need to be a mechanic at heart. Below are a few myths about running a car care center through Meineke Franchise.

Franchisees Need to Have Automotive or Mechanical Background

Not only is it not required to have any automotive or mechanical experience to open a Meineke location, many of our franchisees do not! All of our auto repair franchise owners come from diverse professional backgrounds. We’ll provide all of our new franchisees with the necessary information and training needed to run the business. You’ll then be able to select a quality team of mechanics to help drive your business forward.

Franchisees Can Only Have One Location

At Meineke, we encourage our franchisees to work towards opening multiple auto repair franchise locations. Though there are a variety of requirements that a franchisee must meet to be qualified for multi-units, we do offer incentives for those who are looking to advance within their career with Meineke.

Meineke sets all the Rules

There are some basic requirements that we expect to be met when working under the Meineke name, but your business is your business. Through our auto repair franchise, you’ll enjoy the strength of a national brand while being able to operate on a local level.
