Franchising With Driven Brands


If you are considering purchasing a franchise in the automotive aftermarket, then fasten your seatbelt and get ready to roll. Driven Brands and its family of franchise companies are looking for high-energy individuals who are ready to take control of their careers.

With over 1,700 units in operation today, Driven Brands is the number one choice when considering a franchise in the automotive industry.

Get Behind The Wheel

Behind the wheel of the most diversified automotive franchise company in the world is a great place to be—a place with countless advantages and responsibilities. We are completely dedicated to helping entrepreneurs reach their highest level of success and growth potential. Our diversified franchise portfolio provides unparalleled opportunities throughout the automotive franchise industry. The investment levels range from as low as $50,000 for our mobile brands and from $250,000 to $350,000 for our stand alone concepts. Today, our franchisees service over 70,000 customers each and every week and collectively produce nearly $1 billion in annual revenues, making Driven Brands the ultimate automotive franchise holding company.

Winner’s Circle
Our team is a circle of winners that would not be complete without every component working together as a well-oiled machine. From each member of our corporate team to every franchisee and their dedicated staff, our company culture is evident and the goal is the same: we work together every day to be the best we can be and to deliver the best service possible.

A Passionate Pursuit
Driven Brands’ passion for helping people realize their dreams is fueled by one of the leaders of the franchise industry, Ken Walker. Having joined Meineke (now Driven Brands) as president and CEO in 1996, Walker has fearlessly led our company well into the 21st century. His strong ties to the franchise industry have greatly enhanced each of our brands and their ability to continue to grow and remain relevant. After many years of service, including an appointment as chairman of the IFA (International Franchise Organization) Educational Foundation, we are proud to announce that Ken Walker is the incoming chairman of the IFA.

A Solid Framework
Our legacy is truly a collection of rich and unique success stories that has evolved over the last 30 plus years. In 2006, under the leadership of Ken Walker, the dream of creating the nation’s largest automotive franchise holding company became a reality.

Collectively, our brands have been providing services to businesses and consumers alike for more than 130 years. Our brands successfully operate under the veteran leadership of their senior executive teams and are also highly influenced and challenged by our high-tech and state-of-the-art support team. As a result, our brands operate proven business systems using the latest in today’s technologies and applications. While each of our brands operates independently, Driven Brands has created a “shared service” division that supports each brand in a variety of ways.

Today, Driven Brands’ shared service team provides many synergistic opportunities to both our franchisees and to consumers, that are simply unmatched by any other brand. From training and support to incredible marketing and product purchase power, Driven Brands is the dominant force within the automotive and franchise industry.

Locally Grounded

Despite our size, we recognize that all business starts at the local level. We value our franchisees and what they do for our consumers and within our communities. If you are looking for the support of an established and proven organization, but enjoy the comforts of a family operation, then Driven Brands and its family of franchise concepts is the fit for you.

Meineke History

In Houston, Texas, in 1972, Sam Meineke began with only one store and a single product line. Since that time, the Meineke brand name has evolved from a “muffler” shop to the automotive “car care” center you know today. Nationwide, there are over 900 of these car care centers today.

Geared For Business Success

Meineke has successfully adapted its automotive business franchise system to the one-stop model that today's consumers are looking for. Together, both franchisor and franchisees share the advantages of a nationally recognized name, a broad range of services, hands-on training, and a Meineke system that's geared for business success. Benefits like these give each Meineke franchise a significant edge over the automotive competition in their market area.

In fact, here are some other people who think highly of the Meineke business model:

Mobile Services History

Over the past 35 plus years, Driven Brands has acquired three different mobile service brands, each with their own niche in the automotive care industry. The mobile services business model is truly unique.

America’s Paint Repair Specialists

Aero Colours, Inc. has been delivering high-quality mobile auto touch-up and paint repair service since 1985. Aero Colours is recognized as the market leader in the paint repair industry based on our superior paint repair processes, industry-leading products, and highly trained and motivated franchisees. In addition to the dealer market, opportunities also exist with wholesalers, commercial fleets and individual car owners.

Experience in paint repair is not necessary as many of our successful franchisees come to us with unrelated business experience and careers. We will provide you with the tools and guidance that will help you build and grow your business if you have a genuine interest and are willing to make the commitment for success


AutoQual is North America's #1 mobile provider of vehicle cleaning, restoration, protection and maintenance services to new and used car dealers. We are #1 in our category, in both size and market share. Founded in Denver, Colorado in 1998, AutoQual has evolved to become the successful franchise it is today.

Starting as a small, local business, AutoQual has grown to over 80 franchises servicing thousands of car dealerships throughout the United States and Canada. AutoQual continues to expand its service offering and market presence through structured programs of diversification and sales development. You could expand with us next!

Your Style Accessorized

Drive N Style is a mobile installation company, with a focus on creating "Special Editions." Our CREATE YOUR OWN SPECIAL EDITION™ is part of a $29 billion retail industry that capitalizes on America's love affair with cars and trucks. We are #1 in our category and a franchise success throughout North America.

Our business model has our franchisees working right on the lots of new car dealerships. Before a new car is driven off the lot, our franchisees can install complementary, stylish products including wood or stainless dash kits, wood or stainless steering wheels, stainless grilles, rear deck spoilers, and exterior stainless or chrome trim and a host of truck accessories.

If you're looking for an exciting, fast-paced and low-risk business with minimal investment and start-up time, Drive N Style is an opportunity you should seriously consider. Contact us today to see if a Drive N Style mobile franchise is right up your alley.


Driven Brands could not be more proud of the North American expansion and exposure that its Maaco and Meineke brands have garnered over the past 35 years and counting. Just in recent years our international expansion has started to flourish. We have begun to set up shop in a number of markets across the globe, spanning three countries on three continents with more in the pipeline.

Our plan is to become the leader in the global automotive service business, bringing franchise innovation, a proven business model and incredible brand equity to other countries. Below, we will touch upon the available Master License opportunities that enable entrepreneurial organizations and individuals in other countries to become franchisors, utilizing the same system for success.
