Business Description

AAMCO - The Leading Auto and Transmission Repair Franchise

This is an exciting opportunity to own an established AAMCO franchise. From transmissions to electric vehicle repair, an iconic brand keeps its sights on the future.

AAMCO is one of the most forward-looking brands in the $67 billion auto repair industry. Widely known as the worldwide leader in transmission repair, AAMCO is leveraging technology, ongoing training and education, and overwhelming brand recognition to dominate the future of automotive repair. The industry shift toward technologically enhanced vehicles already is here, as is the emergence of hybrid and electric vehicles, and AAMCO is the only brand capable of winning a sizable share of the complex car repair business that the cars of today and tomorrow will generate.

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 675 auto repair franchise locations in the United States and Canada. 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. We recently hired a marketing firm to measure how well the public knows our brand, and 73% of people surveyed recognized us as the leading brand for transmission repair. This is no accident; we’ve spent five decades building customer trust through our “Double-A-BEEP-BEEP-M-C-O” marketing campaigns.

AAMCO IS A GROWING FRANCHISE. “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.” AAMCO is far and away the most dominant brand in transmission repair. We now have the opportunity to leverage our position to win over customers for long-term care and help our franchise owners capture an outsized share of the $100 billion combined annual revenue of the 160,000 establishments that make up the US automotive repair and maintenance services industry (“Automotive Repair & Maintenance Services Industry Profile,” First Research, http://www.firstresearch.com-industry/Automotive-Repair-and-Maintenance-Services.html”).

Competition:
As part of the Icahn Automotive Group, one of the largest franchisors in the auto repair industry with four brands and more than 2,000 locations across the country, AAMCO franchise owners reap enormous benefits. Brands in the network, such as Pep Boys and Precision Auto Tuning, specialize in different aspects of auto care, and therefore are able to refer complex car repair work to AAMCO franchise owners. Icahn Automotive Group also has tremendous buying power, which helps to keep inventory costs low for AAMCO franchise owners on an ongoing basis.

There’s a big opportunity to capture more of the general auto repair market. According to Automotive Digest, no brand owns more than a 10% share of the overall automobile repair market.

To do this, we have rolled out our “Trust” campaign in national and local markets to build customer awareness of all the services we offer. In 2016, 66% of our customers visited us for Total Car Care, up from 60% in 2014.
