Iconic auto repair franchise announces multiple new openings across the country, plans several more before the beginning of summer
AAMCO, the world’s largest chain of transmission specialists and leader in total car care services, is well into another bright year of rapid nationwide expansion. The auto repair giant has already opened five new centers in five states from New York to California in 2017, and plans to open an additional eight new centers before the beginning of summer.
The expansion is also projected to be strong beyond the summer season, as three entrepreneurs have delivered deposits to open three new AAMCO centers later in the year. With a full pipeline of interested candidates, AAMCO anticipates the number of deposits to continue to grow, setting up the rest of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 to be two of the best years in the brand’s storied 50+ year history as a franchise system.
“There is no question that the interest in AAMCO is incredibly strong,” says Kim Robinson, Director of Franchise Development with AAMCO. “As an investment opportunity, AAMCO truly makes sense for entrepreneurs who want to join a brand that is committed to their success. In recent years, AAMCO has made significant investments in technology and training, as well as successfully launched Total Car Care, which helps our franchisees win an outsized share of the $64 billion auto repair industry by providing access to multiple revenue streams. All of these efforts have made AAMCO easier to run and easier to scale, which is evident in the fact that our existing franchisees are submitting deposits to open up new centers in record numbers.”
Here is the complete list of where AAMCO has opened new locations so far in 2017:
- San Marcos, California
- Jacksonville, Arkansas
- Summerville, South Carolina
- Phoenixville, Pennsylvania
- Freeport, New York

Interested candidates should have a minimum net worth of $250,000 and liquid assets of at least $65,000 per unit. Depending on the real estate site selected, franchisees can expect the total investment to be approximately $227,400 – $333,000 with a $39,500 initial franchise fee.
