Hot on the heels of being a LearningElite award winner by Chief Learning Officer, AAMCO is honored as the #12 franchise opportunity for 2018 by National Oil & Lube News.
The publication’s prestigious annual ranking, “Tops in the Industry,” is intended to help entrepreneurs interested in investing in an auto repair franchise to make an informed decision. Known as the world’s leading transmission expert for more than 50 years, AAMCO’s network of locally owned and independently operated automotive service centers employs diagnostic experts that use the latest technology to solve even the most complicated powertrain system issues, fix them right the first time, and back them with a nationwide warranty. This emphasis on complicated repair is bolstered by a consumer financing platform that helps franchisees sell expensive and complicated repair without burdening their customers.
AAMCO has also made significant investments in training and technology to help franchise maximize their profitability, hire and retain the best technicians and simplify the business model. In 2014, the brand launched AAMCO University, a state-of-the-art training facility in Newnan, Georgia, that offers more than 300 hours of classes for franchisees and their technicians. More recently, AAMCO rolled out a new Point of Sale platform that provides franchisees with executive class analytics, helping to make scaling to multi-unit ownership easier than ever before. The results of their efforts is that AAMCO is now attracting entrepreneurs without any prior experience in the auto repair industry.
