Meineke Franchise Store for Sale in W/NW Suburbs of Illinois
DuPage County, IL
The current owners opened this franchise location in March of 2013. They had no experience in the automotive repair business, so they chose to go the franchise route and open a Meineke franchise store in the West suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. It’s located in a busy and relatively new shopping center with other well-known tenants such as Kentucky Fried Chicken, Pizza Hut & Dunkin Donuts. There’s also a very popular Culver’s directly across the street. The business is located on a busy road and according to the Illinois Department of Transportation, there are an average of 19,900 cars driving past this location each day.
This business is family owned. Only one member of the family is involved in managing the business on a daily basis. They are from Canada and are considering moving back to Canada at some point in the future, so they are exploring the possibility of selling the business. Other than the owner managing the business, they also have 3 full-time employees. Most Meineke businesses only need 4-5 employees to generate $400,000 to $500,000 in sales.
