Honest-1 Auto Care®
Every year the average age of the 249 million operating vehicles in the U.S. is growing older. With over $35 billion in maintenance and repairs per year, now is the time to take advantage of the great opportunity that Honest-1 is offering. Our philosophy is Honesty, Value and Support. We provide an unwavering commitment to our customers as well as the environment we all live in.
The Honest-1 brand is developed through superior training, support and a vast array of franchise offerings including Region Developer/Unit Owners. We are the country's most trusted family of automotive maintenance and repair centers. It is our dedication to our customers and franchisees that has made us the most powerful automotive franchise in the industry.
We provide multiple franchise programs to fit most investment levels and situations.
Region Developer Program:
Strong six-figure income potential. This program allows a developer to obtain a larger territory with the intention of selling and developing future Honest-1 franchises. A Region Developer will pay a franchise fee for the right to own the area as well as develop and service a specific number of centers. In return the developer receives a percentage of the initial franchise fees and ongoing royalties. We want the RD to focus 100% on selling and opening unit franchises so we do not require the RDs to open a unit. Each RD has a development timetable within which to sell unit franchises in their exclusive territory.
- New Franchisees: Little or no industry knowledge? No problem. We provide an extensive and ongoing training program for new and existing businesses. We will also work with real estate developers and have you up and running in a new "build-to-suit" center.
- Current Owners: For current automotive repair center owners we offer a simple conversion program that is straightforward. This includes some great financial incentives.
