About Us

The Franchise Leader For 50 Years…And Counting.

AAMCO has been driving the automotive service industry since 1963, a franchise legacy we've worked hard to attain. With our reputation of integrity, we've built the world's largest chain of automotive specialists. Our roadmap to success fuels the advantages we enjoy today—both in the automotive world and in the franchise industry. With 50 years on top, as the PROVEN industry leader, our vantage point has its rewards. And we just keep getting better:

  • Franchise 500 List: Entrepreneur Magazine
    • Top 10% of overall franchises
    • Top 10% in global franchises
    • #1 industry 28 of the last 30 years and 10 years running!
  • The Top 20 Franchises to Start
    • #16 Best Overall Value Franchise

We Lead Because We Follow.

Being among the first to recognize the trend of today's Americans keeping their cars longer, we added general automotive care to our menu of transmission services and the success of our franchisees has multiplied. Why? Because in the $200 billion-plus automotive repair aftermarket, we have brand recognition in excess of 90 percent. Add to that almost 900 locations nationwide, along with the most highly skilled technicians in the industry, and you've got the market leader strategically positioned to dominate brakes, tune-ups, air conditioning, and other aftermarket services.

Why Choose AAMCO?

Now's The Time To Follow The Leader.

Once you learn more about us, your only question will be: "Why chose anyone except AAMCO?"

In today's economy, more cars than ever are out of warranty, averaging over ten years on the road. With more auto dealers closing daily, this means more customers for our franchisees, more services per customer, and more return on investment. In fact, even at the height of the biggest recession in a generation, many of our AAMCO franchisees across the country are enjoying year-over-year revenue growth.

But an opportunity with AAMCO is more than a franchise business—this is an opportunity to enhance your lifestyle and secure the future for your family. It starts with the strength of our business model:

  • Recession Resistant Business
  • Low Inventory/Low Number of Employees
  • Opportunity to Own Real Estate
  • Reasonable Business Hours (5.5 day work week—great work/life balance)
  • Opportunities for Multi-Unit Growth

Ideal Candidate

Am I Qualified To Own An Aamco Franchise?

Owning an AAMCO center is great for any entrepreneur who wants a successful business. AAMCO franchisees come from very diverse backgrounds. Finance, hospitality, engineering, medical, and real estate are just a few of the industries that produce qualified, successful AAMCO owners. In addition, many AAMCO franchisees have no previous automotive experience.

The one thing every one of our franchisees DO have in common?
A burning desire to be successful and own a thriving business.

"When I looked at different franchises, I realized that AAMCO offered the best return, the most company support, and a viable future. The operations team is very hands-on. If I call my Regional Operations Manager, he gets back to me immediately, comes to my center, and offers suggestions or provides answers that can help my business grow."
-Tony Sollitto, Owner 2 AAMCO Centers, Staten Island and Brooklyn, NY

"This is a business with staying power and that's continuing to grow. Before joining AAMCO, I was a service writer for a car dealership; I saw how much business was out there. I wanted to stop making money for someone else and start making money for myself. AAMCO gave me that opportunity."
-Wayne Martella, Mulit-Unit Owner AAMCO Centers, Arizona
