AAMCO has spent the past half century as the worldwide leader in transmission repairs. Since our founding in 1962, we have serviced more than 45 million vehicles, and we have nearly 650 auto repair franchise locations in North America.
Our legacy brand continues to thrive. Entrepreneur magazine has consistently ranked us as a top choice in its annual Franchise 500 rankings of franchise opportunities. We are also an iconic brand that customers know.
In the early 2000s, we diversified our business model. We realized that customers also trusted us to provide other repair services for their vehicles, so we launched our Total Car Care program. This successful program greatly expanded the revenue potential of a single AAMCO franchise and has allowed our franchise owners to earn a bigger slice of the general automotive repair market, which generates $63 billion a year in sales according to IBISWorld research. In 2016, 66% of our customers visited us for Total Car Care, up from 60% in 2014.
"Now is a great time to invest in an AAMCO franchise as we are making significant investments in supporting our franchisees in both the short term and for the future. Our long-term plan allows us to leverage and build upon our 50-year heritage," says Jim Gregory, President and CEO of AAMCO. "We have a core brand positioning of expertise within the the transmission business, and customers know that if you are highly skilled in repairing transmissions, you can fix and maintain anything that a vehicle needs. Our core category of transmission repair continues to grow, and we've seen huge, double-digit increases in our Total Car Care category."
Why Our Franchise?
The AAMCO leadership team believes that it's absolutely paramount that we are perceived as the industry's technical experts in Total Car Care, as we are perceived in transmission repair. That is how we will maintain the leadership position that our wonderful brand has earned over the past 50 years.
We recognize that the automotive industry is becoming more complex, and to ensure that our owners and technicians achieve the level of expertise they need, we have made a significant investment in creating a state-of-the-art education and training center, which we call AAMCO University.
While we don't require that our owners have prior automotive experience before partnering with us, they will know the second they walk through the doors of AAMCO University that we take our training seriously.
Our top-of-the-line programs and equipment have provided consistent benefit to franchisees, staff, and loyal customers who trust the AAMCO name like no other in the automotive world. Franchise owners can work with our expert instructors in more than 300 courses ranging from basic shop safety to master-level diagnostics and transmission rebuilding. These modules are offered in classroom, online, and interactive settings.
