AAMCO Auto Repair Franchise: Prime Locations Available in the San Francisco Area
The fastest-growing auto repair franchise in the country is rapidly expanding in San Francisco
AAMCO is seeking to partner with entrepreneurs in the San Francisco area as the iconic auto repair franchise rapidly expands throughout the country. There are about a dozen AAMCO locations in the Bay Area already, but the area’s growing population has primed the market for many more opportunities in the auto repair franchise.
We are looking for partners to open more locations in San Francisco. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city itself has 837,000 residents, and the ones who own cars typically spend more than $8,000 a year on auto maintenance and operation, according to the American Automobile Association.
Why San Francisco? Why now?
With an estimated regional headcount of 7.4 million, according to the Census Bureau, the San Francisco Bay Area is the fifth-largest metropolitan area in the nation. With a little more than two people per household on average, and 69% of those households owning a car, it’s easy to project high demand for auto repairs throughout the area.
Bring the fastest-growing auto repair franchise to your community
Since our founding in 1962, we have serviced more than 45 million vehicles and have opened more than 700 auto repair franchises across North America. Customers love our services, and that’s not the only advantage we offer franchisees. We offer great systems for running your business. And, while they’re still available, we offer great locations! Other auto repair franchises have high saturation, which means they have very limited territories available. With AAMCO, however, there are still opportunities to secure prime locations in San Francisco.
Do I qualify for a franchise?
Having experience in the auto repair business is not required for franchisees, because AAMCO has excellent training and support. Entrepreneurs from all backgrounds have learned — and can learn — to operate our professional franchises. You bring the commitment, drive, focus, and desire to be your own boss. The investment required to start an AAMCO franchise ranges from $227,400 to $333,000. This figure includes a $39,500 franchising fee, a range of $78,400 to $98,000 for equipment and supplies, $10,000 for business coach training, and a range of $14,000 to $43,000 for real estate and utility deposits. We’re looking for people who have net worth of at least $250,000 and minimum liquidity of at least $65,000.
