The Car-X Story

Founded in 1971 by a group of experienced muffler shop owners, Car-X Tire & Auto began as an exhaust specialist. Today, the company has grown to become the nation’s leading automotive service expert, providing just about any automotive repair you can imagine.

Locally owned and operated for almost 50 years, Car-X has a reputation of providing exceptional service. The team continually strives to exceed expectations of every customer who walks through the doors.

“The Car-X Tire & Auto franchising process was straightforward, and Car-X worked with me every step of the way. I entered this arena not knowing how to manage an auto repair business, but the Car-X Team helped me and my family get started very quickly. I researched several opportunities and know I’ve made the right choice in Car-X. “

Joining Our Car-X
Franchise Family

What does it take to become a member of the Car-X Team? It takes the drive to be successful and discipline to empower that drive. Plus, it requires diligence, honesty, hard work, attention to detail, sufficient capital and a commitment to excellence.

Additional requirements include:

A customer-oriented nature – You must make every customer feel that you appreciate their business and are fully capable of servicing their vehicle honestly. These “people skills” must be finely-honed, as they are called into play every single day in managing your employees, working with suppliers and most importantly, when interacting with customers.

Mechanical aptitude – (helpful, but not a prerequisite)
Many of our successful franchisees have very different backgrounds, but every successful Car-X owner has a deep appreciation for the fact that satisfied customers make an operation competitive and successful.

Willingness to invest time, attention and labor, as well as your capital – Owning a Car-X franchise is a hands-on, working situation, not simply a financial investment. Active, full-time involvement is essential.
