Property Information


Business is in a fast growing area of largest city in the state. Facility is located near major retail shopping center and theater cluster. Shop has 2,826 square feet with 6 bays and more than ample equipment. Favorable lease terms and high traffic area make this shop stand out.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

The business was doing better before Owner purchased another shop across town. He then split his time between the two. A new owner should be able to ramp up the sales and get the store back up to over $700,000 in gross revenues. The numbers prove the potential is there.


There are other car repair facilities in the city, but no direct competitors are close. Wide brand awareness gives this store a distinct advantage. National and local advertising campaigns in place to put it above the competition. Customers associate the name with reliable quality work at a reasonable price. The field of auto repair has been expanding throughout the past several years as we have seen the average age of vehicles increase. In addition to keeping their cars longer, there has also been an increase in the number of cars sold each year. Miles driven continue to grow, resulting in increased maintenance and repairs.

Reason for selling:

Owner has opportunity for another business venture.

Support & Training:

Will train for 2 weeks @ no cost. This business is a full service car care facility. They do all preventative maintenance as well as expert, affordable repair, including brakes, tune-ups, transmission service, oil change, tires & wheels, exhaust & mufflers, A/C service and repair, steering & suspension, vision & safety, inspections, cv joints, etc. Potential Buyer must qualify with franchisor and attend two week training at corporate headquarters before franchise license can be transferred.
