Here’s what successful AAMCO franchise owners are saying:
“What I like about AAMCO and the transmission business is that as cars evolve, any power that happens in the car has to go through transmission to the tires to make the cars go,” Wayne says. “I will always have cars to fix. To make the wheels turn, there has to be a transmission involved, and that’s us.” - Wayne Martella, Owner of 3 AAMCO Centers | Arizona
“I had never considered owning an AAMCO franchise before, but I saw it as a great thing,” Sherri says. “Especially now that we have the remanufacturing facility and can send our transmission repair work to AAMCO, it has become pretty easy to manage. We are saving a salary in not having to employ a builder, as well as keeping ourselves from the challenges of maintaining a specialized workforce. We also don’t have to worry when new transmissions come out if your builder has ever worked on one before.” - Sherri Underland, Owner of 1 AAMCO Center | Levittown, Pennsylvania
“It’s definitely a great business,” Lou says. “With the new management team, with AAMCO University, and with our remanufacturing facility, we’re going to have a bright future.” AAMCO is well-known for the extensive training it offers new and current AAMCO franchisees. “AAMCO always has a lot of training,” Lou says. “They have business seminars and center manager schools. That’s how I was able to go from a high school graduate to a pretty sharp businessman, if I do say so myself.” - Lou Fizzarotti, Owner of 1 AAMCO Center | Jersey City, New Jersey
