If you're looking to get into the auto repair industry, why not go with a world class leader like Midas. Since 1956, Midas has been taking care of customers' automobiles and trucks throughout the United States and Canada. The company now has nearly 1,300 locations in both of these markets. At Midas, you'll offer the entire gamut of services -- from oil changes and brake repairs to new tire and muffler installation. And all of your mechanics will be ASE-certified. Not only that, Midas establishments earn 33 percent more revenue, on average, than its competitors. And that equals extra profits for you. The initial investment for a Midas franchise ranges from $183,130 to $433,097. To convert an existing auto repair shop into a Midas one can cost as little as $73,130. In return, you'll receive both in-shop and classroom training, a business plan, competitive analysis of your market and all the operational and marketing support you'll ever need to be financially independent.
