This is a high cash flow auto repair business where the owner has limited involvement and does not fix cars. The business is a franchise so there are proven systems in place. Automotive experience is not necessary to own this business. There is currently a full-time service manager, 2 full-time automotive technicians, and 1 part-time junior technician. The business performs a full range of automotive repair and maintenance services such as oil changes, brakes, batteries, engine tune-up and repair, transmission, cooling system service, computer diagnostics, factory scheduled maintenance, etc. The business has been established since the early '80s. Due to health issues in the family, the owner is looking to exit in order to devote more time to family. This is a rare opportunity to purchase a well-established and highly profitable auto repair franchise and bring it to the next level. The buyer needs to pay the $6,000 franchise transfer fee and attend several weeks of training offered by the franchisor.
The shop is located on a busy street with excellent visibility. The premise is approximately 4,500 square feet with 8 bays and over 20 parking spots. The current rent is $8,400 per month including NNN expenses.
