The History Of Auto-Lab
Founded in 1989, Auto-Lab began as a single store auto repair facility located in Sturgis, MI. The company quickly grew to five independent facilities focusing on tune-up and diagnostic services. Due to the success and growth of these sites, the company made the strategic decision to begin offering franchise opportunities in 1992. Since that time, the Auto-Lab franchise system has grown to upwards of 30 locations located in Michigan, Indiana, Iowa, Florida, and Texas.
Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Centers has been a part of local communities for 27 years and continues to provide franchisees a business model that contributes to positive community outreach. The company holds an A+ BBB rating, and stresses the importance of exceeding customer satisfaction in each location.
I already own an auto repair shop, can I make it an Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Center?
Yes, you can convert your current auto repair shop to an Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Center. In fact, we have an Auto-Lab conversion program in place. Contact our sales consultant for more information on our conversion program.
Do I have to be a service technician to own an Auto-Lab franchise?
No. A common misconception of our industry is that you have to be a service technician to own an auto repair center. While you will need to employee ASE Certified Technicians to work in your Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Center, any mechanical expertise that our franchises may have is often an added bonus. The most useful asset to an Auto-Lab franchisee is proven success in the management of a business. In fact, several of our most successful franchisees are not auto repair technicians; they range from chemical engineers to business executives, but have all found success by utilizing the Auto-Lab business model and brand.
