 The real estate costs will vary significantly depending on whether you decide to lease, rent, or buy your property.

To qualify to open an AAMCO, candidates need a minimum of $65,000 in liquid capital and a net worth of at least $250,000.

AAMCO has spent the past half century as the worldwide leader in transmission repairs.Since our founding in 1962, we have serviced more than 45 million vehicles, and they have more than 700 auto repair franchise locations in North America. Their legacy brand continues to thrive. Entrepreneur magazine has consistently ranked them as a top choice in its annual Franchise 500 rankings of franchise opportunities. 

They are also an iconic brand that customers know. They recently hired a marketing firm to measure how well the public knows our brand, and 92% of people surveyed recognized them as the leading brand for transmission repair. This is no accident: They’ve spent five decades building customer trust through their “Double-A-BEEP-BEEP-M-C-O” marketing campaign.
