Meineke was founded in 1972 in Houston, Texas. The initial concept of providing exhaust service at discount prices expanded to include complete brake service, oil and lube service, front-end alignment, shock and strut service and catalytic converters.
Meineke is a franchise system that affords freedom, stability, and security to franchisees. The Meineke system affords its franchisees the opportunity to be their own boss in an auto parts franchise they own. The Meineke business gives its franchisees the opportunity to build their business around their personal lives, with little to no outside travel necessary. Owning a Meineke franchise can pave the way to equity and financial freedom.
Franchisees do not even need to come from an automotive background. Franchise owners come from diverse professional backgrounds, which is what makes the brand so unique. Meineke provides a first class, two and a half week training program that teaches the skills needed to run a successful automotive franchise.
Meineke franchisees attend an initial two-week training program that teaches the necessary management and technical skills. Additionally, there is a dedicated team of Franchise Business Consultants that provide ongoing field support.
Marketing support is offered through local marketing managers to give oversight on media plans and local marketing initiatives. They provide keen alignment with operational efforts to support center sales.
Get on with your best life, with Meineke!
