Our Franchisees Say It Best

"After three decades in a single industry I thought I was pigeonholed to a career in telecommunications but I realized that those years created skill sets that were completely transferable to a different career opportunity… Meineke has allowed me to combine a passion and a skill set and channel that into a dream career."
- Jim Alley - North Little Rock, AR


"I saw the financial success of other Meineke dealers and decided it was time to do it for myself.”Bucky Cochran , North Carolina
"Back in 1984, I opened an independent shop and realized I needed a lot more structure. I went with Meineke in 1988 because I clearly needed that structure; it’s been great for me." Ray Howell, Multi-Unit Owner , Virginia
"Meineke has made such a difference in our life. We've been able to see so much of the world, changed the future of our children, it's just amazing." David Wood , Ontario Canada
"As far as securing the future for our family, a big part of that is the financial success of our business. We've been able to grow our business to the million-dollar level. We’ve been very fortunate.”Geoff Gaggio , Ontario, Canada
